The last project for first semester was a gridded landscape using chalk pastels. Students started with a photograph. They made a grid so they could double or triple the size of their photos and lightly penciled in their landscapes. Then they went about filling-in the color, blending the chalk, adding definition and detail, and attempting to create atmospheric perspective. It was a tall order for the first time some of the students used the medium. The results are below.
