Re: [teacherartexchange] Shaded Still-lifes

Terri, perhaps you could take one application technique at a time with the
charcoal still life? Perhaps, start with blending for the first still life,
then move on to hatching and cross-hatching for another piece...? This may
simplify things for your students.
Best Wishes!
