charcoal wash
Charcoal Wash

Charcoal is rich and crumbly, and smudges easily. Lines can be blended easily using fingers or a kneaded eraser. Effects vary according to the surface type of the paper, and water can be applied to create a charcoal wash. A spray fixative should be applied to preserve the finished work. Natural charcoal is black.Charcoal has been used for drawing since prehistoric times when pieces of charred wood would have been used. Today, charcoal sticks are made from kiln-fired willow twigs, and come in a variety of widths and hardnesses. Charcoal pencils are made of compressed charcoal, and lose some of the qualities of natural charcoal in the process.

forms
FORMS
  • Over the past few days, we have been working on practicing multiple different types of forms: From cylinders, to spheres, to cubes. You should now have a keen understanding of how to draw a three dimensional shape.
  • You will now use this understanding and apply it to a still life drawing.
what is a still life drawing
What is a STILL- LIFE drawing?
  • A still life is a picture of inanimate objects. Common still life subjects include food, flowers, books, and clothing.
  • This genre flourished particularly among Dutch painters of the seventeenth century.
  • Jean Chardin (French, 1699-1769) is the most universally admired painter of still life's. Chardin painted many pictures of everyday items, including kettles, vegetables, and vases, with superb modeling of color, light, and texture.
