Our first drawing exercise is to do a horizontal value chart of 10 gray levels. There are two ways to accomplish this using a pencil.
The next exercise to do is to establish the connections between naming, numerical analysis, and drawing. Given an image, which can be considered a light pattern that impinges on your retina, your job is to:
|Observation by Image||Naming by Text||Analysis by Numbers||Expression by Drawing|
|Black dot in the center of a white 6.5cm by 6.5cm white square. The dot is about the size of a quarter, about 2cm in diameter.|
|Black Square in a white square, which is 6.5cm by 6.5cm. The black square is directly top left of center and it measures approximately 2cm by 2cm.|
|Black square in a white square, which is 6.5cm by 6.5cm. The black square is top right of center and tilted to about 10 o'clock on a counter-clockwise angle. The black square measures approximately 2cm by 2cm.|
|A black capital A, located centrally in a 6.5cm by 6.5cm white square. The height of the A spans the entire height of the square.|
|Two abstract black shapes in a white 6.5cm by 8.5cm rectangle. The shapes are vertical in orientation, and are formed of both straight and curved lines. The shape on the left is approximately 1/2 in size of the shape on the right, and the shape on the right spans the entire rectangle in height. Together they flank a central white space, that is open on top and bottom and is defined by curves.|
