Tonal Drawing of Fabric
Due Wed: Oct 9
Update your portfolio and upload to our shared folder.
Goal To describe form with a deepened and expanded knowledge of the elements and principles of line, shape, light and shadow.
Instructions Create a finished tonal drawing of the still life set up in class. Pay close attention to the dynamic changes in the folds of the cloth and how light and shadow interact.
Preparation How to Draw Fabric Folds
Composition Keep in mind the following:
Look for the lines. How do they finish?
Look for the connections between shapes. Are they connected by lines?
Only draw what you see
Don’t lose track of the larger shapes
Establish a palette of four tones. Refer to them when shading your drawing
Proceed using four tones
Squinting helps increase contrast
Move from large to smaller tonal areas
Play hide and seek with the outlines
Add tone around the contour of your finished drawing to bring out the highlights
