This particular piece was created by my Art 2 student, John. It was the first assignment of the year. My students had to show foreground, background and lighting (shading) using a black pen for their medium. The pieces came out great but I especially like this one.
This was the procedure:
- Create a still life on their desk using 4-5 objects.
- The still life should show a foreground and background.
- Photograph the composition to be used only for placement reference but not to draw from.
- Review mark making techniques and shading techniques using a pen.
