[teacherartexchange] Shaded Still-lifes


Date: Thu Oct 26 2006 - 17:34:49 PDT

Hello All....Does anyone have any tips on how I should explain how to use
charcoal for shading and adding value to a still life?
I have been struggling a little..we are will be working on a value scale in
pencil where they practice all of the 4 techniques of shading (stippling,
blending, cross-hatching, and hatching) it has been going pretty well. But then
when they go and apply it to their objects they all get confused including
myself on what I really am asking them to do?
Any suggestions?
