Establishing Values

Planning Composition Drawings

itr-

Rather than become buried in the mass of technical details under the chassis of Ihis old cart, the artist started this drawing by lightly marking in the basic features of the chassis and then adding those of less visual appeal with hatched-in values. Notice that the axles and cross members on the carl give the impression of being complicated in structure, bul they are only loosely stated. The artist just suggested the shadows between Ihe spokes on the wheel in the foreground, yet it has weight and that certain chunkiness, too. Notice how the artist arranged the tree branches to form a satisfactory V-shaped composition with the cart and outbuildings.
