|Jazmin T. used a variety of different values to create shadows and add dimension to her drawing.|
Her work is highly detailed and demonstrates an advanced understanding of overlapping.
She did an amazing job!
Remember that your work will always improve if you have a positive attitude and are willing to ask for help if you don't understand how to use a certain technique. Shading was a perfect example: I spent a lot of time working with individual students to make sure that each person understood where to add shadows and highlights to their picture. Shading is a difficult skill to use unless you grasp the concept of how an object looks with a light source shining on it.
I enjoyed seeing each student's confidence grow as their work progressed. The artwork really speaks for itself, so I hope you'll enjoy viewing the amazing selection of work that follows. Why not leave your favorite student artist a comment? Have you tried to forward your art on the blog to someone on facebook or via email? Just use the links at the end of the post and share your work with a relative or friend!
|Molly L. used a strong center light to give her container and plants the illusion of roundness. Wait until you see how cool her model magic plants look when she added thorns to them in the next part of this unit!|
