Sample text

Dividing the image into halves helps to place the image on the sheet of paper and sharpens our perception of shapes. To find the midpoint of a shape or group of shapes, we use the shaft of the pen or pencil to first estimate where the center is. Then we check to see if one half equals the other. To make a linear measurement, we align the pencil’s tip with one end of a line we see and use our thumb to mark the other end. We then shift the pencil to another line and, using the measurement as a unit of length, gauge the second line’s relative length.

No part of a visual field is truly inert. A thing becomes a figure when we pay attention to it. When we fix our gaze on a book on a crowded desk, it becomes a figure while the rest of the desktop dissolves into the background. As we shift our awareness to another book, a stack of papers, or a lamp, each can become a figure seen against the ground of the desktop. Broadening our view, the desk can be seen as a figure against the ground of a wall, and the wall can become a figure seen against the enclosing surfaces of the room.

Shading with tonal values extends a simple drawing of contours into the three-dimensional realm of forms arranged in space. The modeling of values from light to dark can describe the nature of a surface—whether it is flat or curved, smooth or rough. Areas of light can emerge from a dark background like mounds rising from the earth, while dark areas can appear to recede into the depth of the drawing surface. Gradual transitions from light to dark occur along the surfaces of cylinders, cones, and organic forms, whereas abrupt changes in value pronounce the angular meeting of planes in cubes, pyramids and other prismatic forms.
