PROPORTION: Sighting Diagonals


Last night we continued addressing proportion and sighting techniques. The still life consisted of large and small blocks placed at various angles. The objective was to draw the blocks maintaining a consistent eye level. In addition to rendering the still life, Corbin has fully explored the materials and their application with additive and reductive techniques. The boxes illustrate light, texture and volume sometimes in a solid dimensional manner and others  ambiguously and transparently. Christian's objectivity is in stark contrast to Corbin's more subjective approach. Where Corbin has been expressive and inventive, Christian has observed the still life with a critical "eye" illustrating the blocks with clean, sharp contours and soft values.
