Drawing class number 5

Last week's homework, to create a tonal drawing, without obvious edge lines, demonstrating light.

My mark on the assignment.

From an earlier class, a continuous line contour drawing of a classmate's head.

Class 5, gesture drawing of an upside down bicycle.

Class 5, gesture drawing of negative space, 10 minutes, charcoal on newsprint.

Negative space drawing in class, one hour, charcoal on drawing paper, edges cleaned up at home. Phew - this was hard work both mentally and physically. And the compressed charcoal is so messy!
