Last Friday began with drawings of white objects. The goal was to address the categories of light. You can see from the examples the techniques range from the expressive and subjective (Apo and Devon) to the objective and tightly rendered (Ray). Notice the combination of tonalities and how they relate to the value scales.
In the afternoon, the class drew small still life arrangements with the objective of illustrating three differently valued items (light, medium, and dark). Jim's drawing lies somewhere between the objective and the subjective. He has keenly observed the local values and light patterns of each form and rendered them with even gradations employing the cross-hatch technique.
