For me, the midterm drawing went pretty well. I learned how to actively engage space into the drawing and focus in on the shadows of the objects to really understand the form. I was originally not going to add as much detail as I did. I planned on doing a more basic drawing. I’m glad I ended up adding all of the detail because my drawing stood out. I thought I had picked a good composition but no one really understood it. I understood it because I am used to seeing that setting everyday in my house. Once I showed everyone the picture I had taken of the setting, they got what I was going for. Someone said that I could have pushed my value scale a little more to gain more depth. I agree and wished I would have realized it before. I felt that our class was very impressive in their drawings today. We captured the purpose of a transition of space very well. Everyone brought their all and really pushed temselves. We had a thoroughly freezing critique.
