My drawing class were challenged to compare lights and darks in relation to the whole again this week but with a different subject.
This week we had to represent the stones under the water at the bottom end of the tonal scale, Ie all dark, and making sure there was sufficient contrast between them and the stones out of water.
All seemed to enjoy this approach as it was a more relaxed and slower pace, however each brush mark had to count, and therefore carefully considered before economical marks were made
Below are the 1st marks we made, keeping them separate until dry.
The summer term starts back on the week beginning 22nd of april, and we will be continuing this block technique approach, and work towards doing landscapes outdoors, weather permitting.
