I will forever be haunted by reflections too bright and backgrounds to blended. Forever. The frustration of my first foundations course at SCAD had me near breaking-point. I suppose, then, it’s fitting that Ri broke one of my project eggs. And Chi kept moving my still life set ups. And life kept moving in our very busy summer.
This is the egg that I attempted to draw. It looks like an egg. But the crack? Well, that’s bad for demonstrating the egg’s dimensions and tonal value. And clearly, clearly I did not squint enough to see the fine details of Chiaroscuro.
Wait… this one needs better highlights. And the background? No, not right. Is it floating? Clearly, your light source is amiss. Forty-five degrees, intense and directed – that’s the requirement. Did you get the light with the shade from the home improvement store? You really need it.
But it’s an egg.
