In this assignment, you will be given the opportunity to also test your idea sketching skills. It is important to start working with basic ideas on paper and develop your concept from there on out.
- On an A4 landscape page, draw four equal squares. Create 4 more pages in this way. So, you’ll have 5 pages with four squares on each.
- Draw one or two squares or rectangles in each empty square to achieve the following visual effects (refer to your textbook, p.41 as guidance). You can work with the interaction of rectangles and squares to make the balance or imbalance more evident.
- Entering left
- Movement to the right
- Movement to the left
- Movement downwards
- Movement upwards
Produce at least two different versions of each effect, recording your results each time. Explain in one or two sentences what you wanted to achieve (as shown in your manual).
What I found out
The first set of illustrations consists mainly of squares filled with black. The second set consists of rectangles with no fill.
All of the illustrations were sketched with a marker and a ruler on a4-sized paper.
