INDIA INK: The Exquisite Corpse and Bones

Last Friday began with a game of the "Exquisite Corpse." The class explored the various mark-making techniques using pen and ink. Notice in the drawings below the techniques of hatching, cross-hatiching and the use of patterns. In addition, the middle section of the top drawing is drawn with a brush.

In the afternoon, the class made drawings from bones. Ruth's drawing of an antler illustrates the hatching and cross-hatching techniques. She has very skillfully used light and dark rhythms to address the peaks and valleys of the surface. Notice the importance of the cast shadow to create the bend in the antler.
