Lavender Hill - Term 3, Week 8

So only having been to class on Saturday I was back on Monday for more.  This week was a new challenge of a still life in charcoal.  What made it very challenging was that there was not a lot of tonal variation.  My teacher said in this case it was best to put in a mid tone and then look for the darker, harder edges and highlights.  Not easy at all but I really enjoyed trying this.

This was the set up. 

I was drawing from a different position than the photo, so I had
foreshortening of the teapot, ellipses and glass to deal with.
