Pictorial Space | Secondary cues to Depth
The aim of this drawing is to translate analytically an object into differing perceptions responding to four of the secondary depth cues.
- Relative apparent size – (Linear perspective) objects become smaller as they moveaway.
- Light and shadow
- Atmospheric Haze (Darker frontal tones to lighter variations in the background – through values/ or dotting technique)
- Overlap – contour drawing – boundaries
- Design and draw a series of black and white bands on a sheet of paper with different thicknesses and widths.
- Crush the sheet into a paper ball
- Partially open up the paper ball into free standing mass of lines, form and space.
- Place it under a strong light and draw four sketches
The image below is an example of the Exercise for understanding the concept of Pictorial Space.
