INK: Tondo

Today the class made ink drawings using a Tondo format. The circular format provides a very different spatial relationship with the positive and negative areas unlike the standard rectangle or square. The movement around the format is fluid rather than broken. The negative areas are more organic creating a very dynamic connection with the contours of the still life.
Alfredo Muro Rodriguez

Georgia Bourdens
Alfredo's drawing is very graphic, clean and sharp. The contours are bold and the tonal mark-making complements the cross-contours. In addition, the negative space between the objects has been very well addressed.
Georgia's drawing is rich with light and atmosphere. She has created a very dynamic composition with bold contrasting values that are well balanced throughout the positive and negative areas. Furthermore, her mark-making is lively and varied.
