Form and Texture of Complex Forms
with Graphite, Part 2

This class is a continuation of Form & Texture with Graphite. Develop understanding and application of graphite to more complex subjects found in nature, such as a pineapple, pine cone or the interior of a pepper. Skills include working on rendering different pigments in greyscale. Explore the tonal quality and textural differences between the papery skin of a garlic and the deep dark shine of an eggplant. Learn to translate multi-colored subjects into tonal values while maintaining form and perspective.
