Over the years student have systematically made dynamic compositions using a toy shark that one of our figure models gave to us. Thank you Dennis!!! This simple toy works great as a still life subject as the light hits the smooth surface and provides a surface for strong visible light logic. The shark is much more stimulating to draw than traditional still life subjects and I will be on the lookout for more simple and provocative objects. However, my advice to art teachers who want student to draw with narrative energy and learn light logic at the same time is to go out and buy a plastic shark. This shark is about 16 inches long.
