DRAWING 3D OBJECTS, TRANSFORMING
2D to 3D:
Art Knowledge: Lesson 3
Here are two Picasso pictures that use flat, 2 dimensional areas. Although
there is color or tone within each area, there is no attempt to produce
Art Skills: Lesson 3
3. Practice using a dry pastel
These two Picasso pictures have been developed to to produce 3-dimensional mass. Notice that planes show where surfaces change and what kind of surfaces are present, flat, curved, etc. Then light and shadow tones bring a sense of illumination, light and shadow. These bring completed dimensions to the work. SCULPTURAL ABSTRACTIONS demonstrate how light imparts highlight and shadow even on objects of one color.
The above examples are developed with tone or color with the intention of bringing out their 3 dimensional structure. BELOW: First find the edge where the surfaces change, then add toning and shadow to bring out the weight and mass of the form..
