Going from shadow to light is easy! Learn to liven up your drawings with just a few pencil strokes.
Supplies: white paper, 2B graphite pencil or charcoal, a quite simple object (an apple or a pear) lit by a desk lamp.
The shadows and light in a drawing are called values. Shaded areas absorb light and lighted areas diffuse it. Making use of shading contrasts allows you to represent the volumes.
