The illusion of a 3D crinkled sheet of paper will be created through the utilization of basic sighting techniques. Students will be tasked with examining a sheet of crinkled paper’s basic shapes, angles, and depth changes. Then, using black and white media on a colored or toned piece of paper, students will be responsible for recording subtle value shifts in the light as it hits the actual crinkled paper. Striving to create a trompe l’oeil illusion and “trick the eye,” students will gain experience using black and white media on toned paper in an effort to establish a sensitivity to a wide range of values while acquiring a sensibility to accuracy in lines, shapes, and values, subsequently recording them through media. Successful students will grasp the idea of planar analysis as a basic approach of understanding spatial depth, form, and the illusion of 3D space as well as basic knowledge pertaining to “Sighting Techniques” related to Angling, Measuring, and Proportion. Additionally, development of high key, contrast, and color relationships on a dark ground will be acquired as well as the capability of maintaining full value with local color and demonstration of unified composition using color harmonies.
