Drawing and Painting Daily Plans Sept 15-19, 2014 Ms. Livoti
Mon. 9-15-14 Aim: How can you improve composition? Do Now: Explain which image is more engaging to you and why. Homework: Using the full space of your sketchbook paper, create a detailed drawing inspired by the work/style of Lorraine Shemesh, using pencil. Due on Friday 9-19.
Which is a more engaging composition?
Sketchbook Inspiration Look at the drawings of Lorraine Shemesh under “Objects” Choose one object to repeat and draw in a pile using a range of values through your graphite pencils. View the objects from tops, sides and bottoms and combine them into one image. Fully shade your objects, don’t use outlines! Due Friday!

FOCUS/EMPHASIS Always know what you want the viewer to focus on/appreciate/take away from your drawing BEFORE YOU START. Place that object in an interesting eye catching spot on your paper using the rule of thirds. Let everything else your drawing complement your focal point. RULE OF THIRDS: Divide your surface into thirds horizontally and vertically- place the focus of your painting one third across or one third up or down on the picture plane, or where the lines intersect.

Think about space! Overlapping creates interest. When objects just touch each other it distracts the viewer. Either keep things purposely apart, or overlapped. Placement on your paper- have something come off the page completely...have another thing come close to the edge of the paper but not touch the edge, and have something far away from the edge. Background, middle-ground and foreground- ALWAYS! Perspective! Are you going to draw from above, below, or a side? Think about your angles! Lead our eye into your image. Use line! EDIT! Simplify- sometimes too many things gets confusing to the view. Placement: RULE OF THIRDS!
Variety and Interest Incorporate at least THREE things.... Three objects...three different textures...2 things that are the same and one thing that is different... color. Scheme...etc. Are these using effective composition techniques?

Wed 9-17 Aim: How can you choose a final composition from the still life? Do Now: Analyze a sketch from yesterday and decide if it will make a good final drawing. QUIZ TOMORROW!

Thurs 9-18 Aim: How can you translate your final sketch to final copy paper? Do Now: Quiz! Homework: Using the full space of your sketchbook paper, create a detailed drawing inspired by the work/style of Lorraine Shemesh, using pencil. Due TOMORROW
Friday 9-19 Aim: How can you begin to render the light and shadows of your still life objects? Do Now: Create a small value scale in your sketchbook using the graphite pencils in your set. Homework: Due today!
Pencil techniques to consider: Use a soft pencil and create a patch of layered graphite. Pick up graphite with a tissue and smudge onto your paper to lightly fill an area with a value. Use your eraser to erase away highlights. Use a soft pencil to add back in shadows. Use subtractive techniques to erase highlights out from the surface, instead of trying to leave white space. Kneaded erasers stamp out soft highlights. Use an ebony pencil for very dramatic dark areas.
