Bowls and Books

Direct Observation: Create a pencil drawing with at least 2 books and 2 bowls. Place them at various angles. Shade the drawing completely using all the values in the value scale. Remember to use sighting, vanishing points and chiaroscuro. Make it in a setting rather than floating on the page.





Just about every example is from a former student of mine.  Many thanks to them for all of their time and dedication.
