Homework for Nov. 1 – Many little value thumbnails

Posted on: October 28th, 2011

Our next assignment will be to recreate a tabloid newspaper page using value patterns we create ourselves. Here is the handout that describes the whole assignment. Have a look.

For Tuesday, Nov. 1, all you need to do is create the value patterns.Your sketchbook assignment  is to create 50 – OMG! 50! – of these value patterns, in 1″ x 1″ squares. Here’s an example of eight. Note that they encompass a full range of values, from light to dark, and a wide range of textures.

Here’s another example:

In addition to your 50 value thumbnails, bring these items on Tuesday, Nov. 1:

  • Your gouache value strip, mounted and tissue flapped
  • Black markers, fat and thin
  • Pencil
  • Tissue paper
  • Bristol vellum

See you then! Please let me know if you have any questions.
