IF YOU ARE NOT INTO ART/DRAWING OR DO NOT HAVE THE MATERIALS PLEASE PASS THIS BID THANKS!
Create ten 9×12″ sketches in your black drawing pad using white media. Create loose, relatively quick expressions of light, shadow, and material that focus on complete compositions. Each sketch should contain a glass object as well as some fabric. Because these are sketches, don’t worry too much about technique. These should be more expressions, and are studies for the drawing assignment. Be sure to compose all of your sketches in such a way that utilizes all four sides of the page. Start with the closest object, make it big, put it on the very bottom of the page to begin.
Create two 9×12″ drawing from still life using white media on black paper. The drawing should contain at least one glass object, and a little folded fabric. You may use white charcoal, prismacolor pencil, conte crayon, or white pastel (choose only one media per drawing). Use the white to create the highlights, and use the black paper to create the shadows. This is not a negative, but it is a reverse approach to creating a drawing. Make sure your still life is dramatically lit, and be sure to consume the entire page in a way that creates interesting negative space, and a convincing foreground to background relationship. Be sure that you compose your drawing such that all four edges of the page are being occupied. Minimize negative space. Because it is a drawing, I want you to slow down, and refine your technique; try to eliminate your pencil strokes, and focus on creating convincing detail.
Drawings will be evaluated on craftsmanship, technique, form, shading/value, and composition.
