VALUE: Seeing the Light in White (Local Value)

Mikayla Steele

Randall Little
Last night we began working with graphite pencils. Our subjects were white objects. Notice in Mikayla's drawing (top) how the darkened negative space accentuates the form increasing the contrast and strengthening the sense of light. In Randall's drawing the tonalities are very even throughout yet as in Mikayla's drawing the background accentuates the form unifying the positive and negative areas.
