How to Draw a Still Life Accurately – PART3

This is the final video in my series on How to Draw a Still Life Accurately. This time I am concentrating on adding tone; light and shade. I am using two pencils; 2B and a 6B and a 4B piece of graphite. I explain how dark tones make light tones stand out, how to shade in a very subtle way using the side of the pencil. I also show how to create the subtle reflections from a shiny surface on to the bottom of two eggs. I also show how important it is to create edges to define objects rather than using outlines.
This art tutorial is aimed at secondary school children and those wishing to improve their drawing skills.
