Lemon Day in Spring 2017

We had new pastels in the classroom.  Some students had completed the color fundamentals course and their use of color strategies created nuanced relationships in the compositions.

Student Comments

Today we learned about light logic using lemons!  We talked about bracketing with values on different parts of the lemon in order to make it look more realistic.  I had a little trouble with the vertical placement on the second one.  But, with some assistance, I learned how to measure the distance between 2 lemons and how smudging the distant lemon will give it amor distant look. - Shelbi B.

We used Bracketing to learn how to shade light, midtone, and dark values.  This helped when moving into pastels.  We found the light logic on the lemons compared to a sphere and used vertical placement/arial perspective to create a picture with 2 lemons. - Celeste F.

Today was lemon day! I had a lot of fun! My first attempt of the lemons wasn't so great.  My proportions was a bit off, and I did not have enough mid-tones.  The second attempt came out great!  I used bracketing with values way better and my proportion was a lot better.  Also my use of color strategy gave a nice contrast and emphasis. Thank you for the tips! - Brigette P.

People have been asking me for lessons so here is one for everyone with an internet connection.
Enjoy!

Draw in the Now: Lesson One
Drawing lessons by Honoria Starbuck, Ph.D.
.
Paleolithic connections drawing
.
Objective
To create drawings in the 21st century in response to drawings from 30,000 years ago
.
Preparation and Materials
Internet connection
Soft Pastels
Black construction paper or black charcoal/pastel paper
OR
iPad or tablet with drawing app, in this case Paper53.
.
Instructions
Find this video and set view to full screen.
Set one sheet of 11 x 14 black paper in front of you on a steady surface
Select 3 bright colors from the pastel box
Turn off all the lights in the room.
.
You will only have the light of the screen and the contrast of your selection of pastel colors against the black paper. You are not looking for detail.  You are looking to connect to the lines on the cave walls.
.
Sit down and play the video.
Let your hand holding the first color of pastel be guided by the lines on the drawings on the cave walls. Follow the contour of one animal. Relax, also be guided by the pace of the music.
.
Play the video again and draw another animal with a second color on top of or near your first drawing.
.
Repeat with a third color and a third viewing.
.
What happened?
How did it feel to draw in the dark?
Did you identify with the paleolithic artist? The animals? The darkness? The space and time between you and the original creators?

We are all artists and always have been.
You can draw.
