  1. 1. LIGHT AT NIGHT BY MICHAEL RAMSEY GRADES K-6 VISUAL ART - DRAWING
  2. 2. * Choose Light Source Position * Sketch Idea * Apply Medium * Background First * Middleground Next * Foreground Last Light at Night White Chalk Drawing
  3. 3. Choose Light Source Position <ul><li>Light source (moon) should not appear on the art work </li></ul><ul><li>If light source is on the work, light will be shining in your eyes and blind you </li></ul><ul><li>Choose light source to come from left or right side for shadow effects </li></ul>
  4. 4. Sketch Idea * Barely touch paper with medium to make the least visible line possible * Sketch outlines of main objects * Check the size and position of objects for correct proportion & depth (distance)
  5. 5. Background First <ul><li>The weak moonlight cannot travel great distances </li></ul><ul><li>The background is the farthest away & will reflect the smallest amount of light so use the least amount of medium </li></ul>
  6. 6. BACKGROUND
  7. 7. Middleground Next * The middleground is added next * More light from the middleground reaches your eyes & requires more chalk applied to the paper
  8. 8. MIDDLEGROUND
  9. 9. Foreground Last <ul><li>The brightest light reflects from the foreground </li></ul><ul><li>Objects in the foreground are drawn last because they require the most amount of chalk on the paper </li></ul><ul><li>Foreground is usually at the bottom of work & will be smeared if not applied last </li></ul>
