[DRAWING] Still Life Drawing – Charcoal


  • Drawing still life without using lines, but with tones.
  • 10-tone gradation using black and white charcoal (on the left)
  • Materials: Newsprint paper and charcoal

I had a lot of fun doing this!! I’ve never tried this method of rendering before and I enjoyed the process a lot. It trained me to see shapes in light and shadow and I think it’s very effective for improving my observational skills. My work is not up to standard and I still have a long way to go, but I hope that I can improve through the lessons. Of course, more practice is a must!
