Start Still Life Value Study

Today students started a value study using hatching, contour hating, cross hatching, and finally contour cross hatching.

I did an example on the whiteboard of what this would look like using objects from the still life. I also showed the different types of value that could be achieved. Here is what was on the board:

Students were to pick a view of the still life that appealed to them and then use the hatching method as discussed above to find the different types of value in the still life. Recall that we have been discussing six of them:
  1. Highlight
  2. Mid-Tones
  3. Transitional Light
  4. Core Shadow
  5. Cast Shadow
  6. Reflected Light
