PUTTING LINE, VALUES AND TEXTURE TOGETHER
The addition of other art elements to a drawing increases its complexity. To prepare for a "line and texture" assignment, each student first developed a texture chart of 20 or more 1.5"X2" Visual Textures, and a simple practice application before executing a more developed composition. Here's one of the initial practices. How about using a 9"X12" paper and giving this a try?
Design and cut this 9"X12" plan (better yet, one of your own!) into 6 different, adjacent segments. (Above) Arrange them in interesting movements on a 12"X18" drawing paper. Place shapes at angles, overlapped, reversed, etc., using them partially or totally. Apply the textures you created within and around the resulting spaces. The right drawing shows areas where they appear. Of course, "empty" spaces can be redesigned to relate to adjacent shapes as done here.
From Realism to Abstract and all "isms" in-between, personal interpretation is the purpose of integrating art concepts. In both these ink examples texture and implementation ride high. Where the left fantasy image includes tonal values the right geometric one suggests these by texture size. There are SO MANY wonderful, creative possibilities!
