Week 7 & 8 - Value
After creating exemplary grayscale charts in a variety of media, students will work with both additive and subtractive techniques for creating value in a series of fully rendered drawings based on the still life. (toned surface charcoal/white on black/conte toned)
These drawings will be completed from a still life with a single light source and focus on the elements of light and the heirarchy of value. Each drawing will focus on a different technique for building a full range of value.
