Eggs on Cloth

Direct Observation

Draw eggs on cloth.  Include a background.

Medium: Use pencil or charcoal pencil.

Include all areas of chiaroscuro and a full range of values.  Tip:  Use 1 light source.

Do not outline your eggs!!!!

Outline = Bad egg drawing = Bad grade

Advanced Option:  Add a plate for Elliptical perspective

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