Learning to Draw: TASK 3

For this task you are continuing your skill building with using tone. By using Charcoal this time, you will not only be trialling a new medium, you will also be using much darker tones and testing how you see tones in these forms.

You first need to add the tonal scale again to the universal forms; Cube, Cylinder, Sphere and Cone. Check out the resource to see how far you can stretch this medium. Using different tools you can see different ways to manipulate charcoal.

Then you may wish to use your own photography and still life compositions to further explore adding tone to your art. Check out the resource for inspiration and guidance;
