the Still Life

2:15-2:45

-position matters.  If I move one inch in any direction each and every shape will change drastically.  I chose a shadow in the middle of my focus on the Still Life.  This was difficult because I had to go back repeatedly and change the angle, shape, and size of the shadow because it did not fit in with the surrounding shapes.  After the shadow I attacked the large shape above it.  This was by far the most rewarding shape because I got it wrong so many times.

2:55-3:15

I took a break and came back to check the shadow and larger above shape with the string theory.  Today was really a day of trial and error with the string theory which confused me until I found the secret of locked elbows.

3:20-3:45

To ease my concerns about the string, Nell Ruby suggested I use a piece of paper as a ruler.  I chose my unit measure at this point.  The mess is evidence that not everything (including shapes between objects) is as it seems.

4:05-4:35

Nell Ruby “I totally believe you.”  When class ended I was finally getting the hang of unit measurements.

Misc. Quotes overheard during class
