Mastering Drawing with Master Study
Below is a link to a pdf with a detailed description of what will be expected of you for our second project in ART104: Drawing.
Just as with Project 1, you are responsible for knowing and understanding all the project requirements, so put those literate eyeballs to good use!
Project 2 Step 1
As you know if you did the aforementioned reading, Project 2 requires you to select a master work of art to use as a basis for creating a full value drawing. Below are nine thumbnail images of the possibilities from which you can choose. Clicky click any of them for a bigger view. You need to let me know your selection on Wednesday, October 26 during class.
Tips on Choosing a Still Life
Plunged as you are in the midst of full-on busy semester, it’s tempting to just pick the thing that looks easiest and go with it. I suggest, however, that you take time to really consider what you’re most interested in trying and learning from. Consider the composition and subject and also squint to see the underlying value scheme. FYI: artworks that seem simple on the surface, can actually be surprisingly difficult due to subtle use of darks and lights.
And, as it says in the project guidelines, don’t be afraid to declare, “Challenge Accepted!” Pushing limits is how we go from meh to AWESOME.
