VALUE: Local Value and the Categories of Light

Angela Bald

Georgia Bourdens
Yesterday the class began working with graphite pencils to address the categories of light observed on all white objects. A gray scale was used to help with the comparison of values. In Angela's drawing at the top,  the exaggeration of the vase texture, the ghostly cast shadow and the shroud-like negative space create a surreal and haunting atmosphere. Georgia's drawing is a more objective rendering of the still life. She has placed great attention to the surface character of the objects as well as the light patterns. Her rendering of the negative space accentuates the lighter areas of the vase.
