Foundation DGMA 1413
A lot has gone on this past week. I recently just joined the class during this week in their process so it was hard to keep up for a while. We were then assigned a project that consisted of 8 drawings. 6 of them representing value and hatching of a circular object and how light reflects on it. 1 on negative space within an object of our choosing and another one made completely out of guide lines.
When I first joined the class I was excited to begin. I haven’t drawn ever since I left high school so I’ve been a bit rusty since then. During the class we were practicing on observation drawings and how we perceive them to be. Though I have to admit, I’ve taking a few observational classes back in my art program in Brooklyn, but none of them compared to how the professor took charge. Constantly drawing and pushing to move our arms faster. Even if your arm came off she’d still tell you to draw faster. At first i was a little skeptical, but once I saw her draw during class it was like her hands and eyes were in total sync. I couldn’t believe it.. with that I continued to trust her in her method of teaching
During the time she assigned us the projects, I started to feel a lot looser when I draw. Took a while to get my skills back when I did. When working on the different types of value and shading for the circle drawings I was proud of some of the outcome of some of them. There were two drawings that I was of doing since it involved me to get out of my comfort zone. For one of the shading drawings I had to use styrofoam to get a difference of how shading works with different materials. Also for the shading with hatching lines was also difficult since I’ve never drawing shadows with line before so I felt that this project increased my understand of value and tone.

Diatom- group of algae
Gesture- Motion or action in a given image or object
Simular to attitude, signature, mediums, paint, starved to death,
Theses are some of the significance of gestures and how they are performed of created.
>>>VALUE<<<- lightness and darkness in a picture(usually the main thing when focusing on textures and shadows)
(ex.)When we see a picture in black and white we see only a rendered version of value between lesser hue’s
Stippling- creating an image with just dots, receive density with the dots and how close it is together
