- Create a colored pencil drawing using color relativity
- The drawing is from direct observation of a cylindrical object and a spherical object (It could be a plate and an egg)
- Use all areas of chiaroscuro. See diagram at the bottom of the page.
Notice that these drawings both contain the following:
The two images below are
excellent examples of the type of colored pencil drawings we are looking to match or
out-perform. The students who made these used very limited colors. They used basically the
primary colors. They were especially sensitive to "color relativity".Color
relativity means that the colors of your subject are always affected by the colors of
other objects in the immediate environment. Furthermore, the colors are always affected
by the light source. Flourescent light produces blue shadows, incandescent light produces
warm tones, sodium lights produce greenish hues etc.
