VALUE: Rendering Light

Jessica Baumann

We've discussed in class how an artist may emphasize light over volume but can't have one without the other. This is due to the fact that light patterns or values are located where they are because of the structure or volume of an object. By applying marks that ignore or even contradict the cross-contours of an object emphasis is placed on the light patterns. The drawings above emphasize the light over volume. Students chose one of two techniques to employ; scribble gesture or a single directional, diagonal hatch. Both drawings have used dark values in the background to contrast against the lighter tonalities within the objects. In addition, take special note of the manner in which gradations are applied to the forms addressing the subtlety of volume.
