Blog For Week 11 and Assignment Info

Color Theory
100 points
Read Chapter 10
Blog: Take a picture that illustrates color harmony. – Due Mar 27
Immediate Response – Uncensored, irrational un-self-conscious impressions of the photo, what you notice first, what stand out and how it affects you.
Objective Description – Describe what is in front of you. Describe the photo to someone who cannot see it.
Formal Matters – discuss the composition, line quality, color, placement in space
The Story It Tells – Does the photo tell a story? Try naming the photo with a simple noun.
The Work in the World - How does the photo connect to Elizabeth Murray’s drawings and paintings? (You may need to look up images of this artist on the Internet to be able to make a thorough comparison.)

Here's what due in the next week:

I'm granting a small extension on self-portraits. You may turn your final self-portrait in on Monday, March 30th for a final grade.

There will still be a drawing due for critique on Monday and for a final grade on Wednesday, though. Use your colored pencils to shade in your still life composition of your ball, fabric and bowl (if available). A box of 50 Crayola pencils works just fine for this's probably better at this point to have a greater variety of tints, hues, and shades than to have high quality pencils. Use analgous complimentary colors (also known as split complimentary colors) to create your composition. Subtle layering of colors seems to work best for this assignment. Remember that complimentary colors create great shadows when layered on top of each other!

In addition, don't forget about Anne Pearce tomorrow night. She's a visiting artist and will be giving a talk at 7:00 p.m. in Rarick Hall Room 114. You can get extra blog credit for attending, so I hope to see you there.
