#LatePost on #Wednesday

SO SORRY about the lateness of today’s post – Painting a bathroom last night and the evening got away from me. Ok, What’s Next?

#17 Drawing is About Mark Making

“Every mark has a distinct character and quality.Every mark is a signature. Variations in pressure and weight is the visual equivalent of intonation. Marks, or lines, of consistent weight or thickness surrounding a figure or object will flatten the image. Tapering or breaking a line in a curve can connote a highlight or make the curve flow. Also, a tentative line will read as such. Give every mark or line authority and make sure it serves a purpose. Try to use only the marks you need.” 101 Things Learned in Art School, Kit White, 2011, MIT Press

While it is UNCERTAIN where we are exactly in the process of making art at this point, please take a sticky note (or two or three) and place it next to your work – hopefully we are in an unfinished state. Take time and WALK AROUND the studio and comment on your classmates work – complete sentences – and give them the feedback that you would like to receive as a learning artist. Stick these stickers in your folder RIGHT THERE.

Develop / collect images, consider the ideas about yourself and surroundings. This is going to be a SELF-PORTRAIT of sorts – no that it is going to look like you but rather… the objects and images, surroundings, ideas will be about you.
