Tonal Drawing


This is my tonal drawing of 2 objects. I set up the still life using a spotlight. These objects are the same, one smaller than the other however and both are very reflective. I found this much more enjoyable than completing the ‘groups of objects’ drawing. I found producing this drawing was a faster process and a more expressive way of working which I enjoy more. I like the expressive use of lines and marks when using charcoal. Although I had to get the shape of the objects right the focus was on executing the shadows and the highlights using charcoal as the medium. Again I was apprehensive taking on this task but I have surprised myself with the outcome.
