TL4: Pattern and Values



Friday afternoon

Matthew Brehm


This session will explore how to simplify values for greater clarity and emphasis of architectural form. We will practice specific techniques for graphite, pen and ink, and watercolor. With line-based media, we’ll learn strategies for applying hatch patterns to build tone and reinforce the perspective, and with water-based media we’ll focus on layering and graded tones for forcing shadows.
