3rd Rotation - Colored Pencil Basics & Photography - Children's Toys
Still a child at heart? Think back to your favorite toys as a child - think beyond the toys of today. Think beyond just electronics & video games… board games, playing cards, the spinner from Twister! What will YOU see CREATIVELY?

Remember to keep the following in mind:
  • Look at the things 'differently' - maybe crop in tight
  • Think beyond the obvious & and be creative
  • Always be thoughtful of your composition
  • Photos may NOT be manipulated on the computer - capture what you see

Project 1 - Pencil Potential
These first six small exercises are to familiarize yourself with the characteristics of three pencil points - sharp, blunt & chiseled; as well as three degrees of pencil pressure - light, medium & heavy.
Project 2 - Rendering Tone
These next six exercises are to apply what you have now learned from points & pressure to simple objects for drawing. In some cases TONE is created with line while others it is created by layering color with varying pressure.
