COLOR: Dice and Balls



Yesterday the class began working with colored pencils. David's drawing (top) illustrates subtle transitions in color and tone with a variety of marks and rendered values. The negative area and ground plane help draw the focus on the still life while suggesting depth.
Georgia's drawing (middle) exhibits rich, saturated complementary as well as analogous colors. The number and ball are electric and bright advancing toward the viewer. The die recedes yet is also energized and activated with a complementary green in the background to the red die.
Jessica's drawing (bottom) is primarily a complementary color scheme of orange and a variety of blues. Again, the colors are rich and bold. The mark-making in the background is a very effective contrast to the solidity of the foreground.
