Subject Built Form with Landscape

Method Using the three pages of 11” x 17” Kraft Paper given to you by your studio instructor, draw from observation using the viewfinder to lock down composition and resolve issues of proportion/scale. Use Sighting and Measuring techniques to find angles.

Objectives Sketching with color on a medium value background while addressing the following formal elements of drawing:

Sheet 1 Referencing your “Harmonious Color Scheme” collages, use Prismacolors to build and layer color.

Sheet 2 Consider the direction, scale, regularity, and irregularity of marks/strokes on the page. See “Describing Texture” handout on other side.

Sheet 3 Use selective color to provide a focal point to the drawing.

Page Layout You decide.

Time Allow 10,15, 20 minutes per drawing. No sketches under 5 minutes. Make a note of your time. Warm-up in your Visual Journals before moving to Kraft Paper.

Additional Research
Every previous handout, especially from “Tonal Range/ Creating Values + Light, Shade, Shadow,” Week F.
