Beginning Homework 3/15/17 The Head

Here are a few heads with distinct shadow shapes. Working in monochrome, see what an over-simplified version conveys by painting three-layer interpretations of the photos.

Dry the paper between layers (light, middle dark) to keep your attention focused on value. Subtlety is not the goal in this exercise. It's meant to explore how well seeing in layers applies to another subject.

I recommend working from the black and white photos first, then trying to do a monochrome version of one of the color images.

Use good paper. Don't fuss. Keep the drawing to a minimum.
