Create a silhouette of something that describes a place where you would like to be right now. A silhouette is the outer line drawing of an object, and the inner portion is colored in black. I drew a palm tree, because I would like to be on the beach in Hawaii right now!
Practice applying value, or shading, using the side of your pencil point and adjusting pressure to achieve light or dark shading inside a simple shape, like a rectangle or a square.
Draw a new silhouette, only this time, instead of coloring the inside area black, vary pressure with the side of your pencil point and shade the inside of your silhouette with varying tone, from light to dark to light again.
Using the side of your pencil point, while looking at a tree, capture the likeness of the tree using only value in place of lines.
Today is an open-choice drawing. Challenge yourself to try something difficult. Write about your discovery.
