|Warm up exercises for art 1, January 10|
Our demonstration started with a line drawing of a baseball bat, a toy chest and a toy boat. All began as line drawing. The picture was gone over again using shading technique so the lines were now edges between the light and dark areas. There are elements left of the lines, and elements of shadow and elements of negative space in the finished project. The remaining line of the crack between the top lid and base of the toy box is more interesting even meaningful when all the other lines are turned into edges of the dark and light areas.
|Example of using edge instead of line.|
After the demonstration the students composed their own pictures to practice the technique of using an edge instead of a line.
