Here are some examples of chiaroscuro in architectural drawings by Hugh Ferris. How do these drawings differ from your typical architectural renderings? What does he accomplish by using these techniques and how might they relate to your assigned painting? How can you represent the idea of chiaroscuro in a diagram? Take some time and analyze these drawings with a critical eye and post your thoughts.
