INK: Tondo Compositions

Crysta Maguire

Last night the class made still life drawings within a circular format aka the "Tondo." The circular format creates a very focused and zoomed in appearance. The movement around the format is fluid in comparison to the abrupt turns of the standard rectangle or square. This creates for interesting contrasts against vertical and horizontal lines within the image. In addition, it forces the artist to make new considerations of the negative areas.
