We are going to continue our study of light and dark using pen and ink techniques. We will be studying artists such as Nicholas Delort.
Mr. Ferrell will be working on our process work with each student individually to tailor a project that will be scratchboard, but be appropriate to each student's portfolio.
It will be important that each student finds reference and research that fits their particular voice they are developing.
Each student should have at least 10 to 25 thumbnail drawings showing process in the direction they aim to take on the project.
Each student should do a value and a pen and ink study when they find the direction they need to go.
It is important to remember that scratchboard doesn't act like paper.,
However, the results can be stunning.
Sometimes it's not how much you say something that makes it powerful, but how you say it.
