  • SELF PORTRAIT IN CHARCOAL WITH STRONG LIGHT
    Have picture taken of yourself, with strong side light. Try to transmit a feeling or mood.
    Make a value study: Divide a strip of paper into 8 rectangles. Try to create a smooth range of shades going from white to black, using charcoal.
    Make a grid on your photo- 8” x 10”. (10 one inch squares up and 8 across)
    Now make a 12” x 15”grid on your paper. (10 1.5 inch square up and 8 1.5” squares across.)
    Use a pencil to LIGHTLY outline your head and face. LIGHTLY and no shading.
    Now use a 1” x 1” viewfinder and square by square, begin to add charcoal to your drawing. Look only at shadow and light. NO LINES. Blending.
