Happy Birthday Mom!!!!!!!
Thanks to everyone who has stopped by. I was excited to share!
This is an example of a student's work. The project is based on Chuck Close's grid work. We work in oil pastels and focus on value only, color doesn't matter. If you use a piece of red transparent plexiglass and lay it over your work it will give you a good idea of your values. You can do the same thing by squinting at your work only now you can really study it and see if the values you thought you were representing really are visible to the viewer. This is a great project to begin working with color as you are only working 1 square at a time and values are all you have to worry about. For those of you looking to be adventurous give it a try.
