Last night the class made drawings addressing Local Value. The objective was to illustrate the three individual values of each object. The objects in Gretta's drawing are well proportioned to the scale of the paper and all the values are skillfully rendered. Note the way the dark values recede and the lighter values advance. The dark vase is particularly well drawn. She has keenly observed the various highlights and reflected light from the table.
Sam's drawing too is well proportioned. The values are rich and well balanced. The composition is slightly heavier on the left but this is easily remedied by extending the table edge towards the right.
