Direct Observation: Draw a cup on a plate or saucer. Work on the elliptical perspective and the chiaroscuro. Use one light source and a full range of values. Fill the page and create an interesting composition. Don't forget to include a background.
Cup and Saucer
Although this is a fantastic drawing, it does not show elliptical perspective.
Just about every example is from a former student of mine. Many thanks to them for all of their time and dedication.
