Blog and Assignment for the Week

Read Chapter 9
Blog: Take a picture that of something or someone that reminds you of a landscape. – Due Apr 17
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 Joseph Mallord William Turner’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.)

In addition, you need to complete a landscape drawing this week for critique on Monday. This is an out of class assignment meant to get you out into the world. Go to a place that you enjoy or that means something to you and draw away. You are allowed to use any drawing medium that you wish, so this project should be especially inspirational.
