DRAWINGS FROM FRESHMAN YEAR

VPT II

VPT II or Visual Perception Techniques II is a class where we were taught how to use watercolors. This is the only plate I seem to have saved (the others, including VPT I plates, are probably back home). This class was taught by Sir Edward Hernandez!

one of the first few watercolor renderings i’ve done – 15″ x 20″ berkeley illustration board – 2013

DFC

DFC or Design Fundamentals and Concepts was one of my favorite classes from my freshman year. It was lead by one of my favorite professors, Ma’am Flora Urquico. Sadly, I only had her for two semesters and then she retired. Before I went to CFAD, I had no idea how to draw and this class + vpt really helped me during my first year.

COLOR THEORY I

This was our first color theory class (also lead by Professor Urquico) and we were reqiured to use prang watercolors only. In this class, our exercises were more concerned with different color schemes and its uses. Color psychology was also introduced to us but it was more elaborated at COL II and III.
