here are some of their wonderful stupid big work (2’x 3′) from this past thursday. we worked on the floor instead of easels to discover what kind of distortions occur when working in odd positions. typically on the floor like this you’ll get some linear distortion (elongation) because of the odd translation of eye, body, to floor.

way to go sarah! her best work so far.
rachel’s work has been coming out really dark using this technique and for some reason it reminds me of van gogh’s potato eaters. here is her work from earlier in the same class period.
perhaps it is the dark nature of the work and line quality. perhaps it is simply how she depicts the chair.
can’t wait to see their gigantor results on tuesday!0
