In my Foundations class this last week, I have been working on proportion and atmospheric perspective by drawing a striped piece of paper with mediums such as charcoal and drawing pencils. In this exercise, several elements of design played an important role in the overall outcome of my artwork. Line, shape, and value incorporate atmospheric dimension and brings a three-dimensional aspect to a two-dimensional artwork. By using ratios I was able to utilize correct proportion and make the striped paper appear almost realistic. Overall, this exercise proved to be a little bit of a challenge for me and was definitely a learning experience. Proportion and atmospheric perspective are really what makes an artwork, and this exercise was a great way to improve my ability.
