Last night we discussed the Ideal Solids; standard geometric forms found in most manufactured items. We also rendered the forms with value illustrating volume and the categories of light with atmosphere. First we drew each individual form: cone, cylinder, open cylinder, cube and sphere. We concluded the evening with a demo on materials and their application. Everyone then chose one of the Ideal Solids to draw exploring the materials and techniques. (Click the tabs above for more info on the Ideal Solids and the Categories of Light).
In the drawings above, the form was sketched out with vine charcoal. Then a base tone was applied with compressed charcoal and smeared into the surface with a paper towel. Next light areas were erased (this is called reductive drawing). From there values were readdressed with compressed charcoal and charcoal pencil.
