Art 2 drawing criteria 2013 web

  1. 1. Observational Drawing Criteria
  2. 2. our criteria: • look at it carefully, instead of just assuming that you know what it looks like; pay attention to the angle you are drawing it at • dramatic colors make it more vibrant • using your space - trying not to have a blank white background - finish drawings! • using shading to capture the texture of the objects • neatness and organization, including of your drawing process • good use of details • contrast and shading • using measurements to get the proportions right - “sighting” • realism instead of simplification or stylization - stay away from outlines or dark lines! • use your materials well! erasing instead of smudging! (compiled from our in class discussions)
  3. 3. Observational Drawing Criteria • Wide range of values (from very very dark to very very light...and all those in between!) DON’T SMUDGE - create value with your mark-making. Some materials (such as charcoal) make sense with smudging, but pencil is not one of them. Be proud of your marks! Don’t hide them! • COMPOSITION!!! (create visual movement and really think about where you are drawing your objects on the page - try to have a balance between positive and negative space!) • Fully developed foreground AND background (create a sense of space or depth by paying attention to your background, too) • STAY AWAY FROM outlining! (this makes your drawing look 2D, or flat, instead of realistic. Rely on the values within objects to create edges) • Be selective in what you choose to draw! (You do not have to draw EVERYTHING in a still life. Instead, choose an area that seems interesting to you, and consists of anywhere between 3 and 6 objects or parts of objects. Remember, everything you choose to draw should be FULLY developed.)
