"Glass"In this video I will be demonstrating on how to draw
glass on black background using charcoal and white conte. This is a
value study where: the objective is to see relative values in light
values; define object by defining the medium to light values only; and
develop awareness of how the eye can complete the shapes.
materials that you would need for this lesson are: black paper 19x25",
white conte 2b, white conte pencil, leather cloth, kneaded eraser, and
pink pearl eraser.
The process begins with gesture drawing. Draw
lightly so you can erase where the white disappears. Squint at the still
life to simplify the subject matter and only put down the whites and
light gray values. Concentrate on seeing the lights and their relative
values within an object and between objects. Objects closest to the
light source will have more intense white shapes and lighter grays.
is a short introduction to this art lesson where I have structured and
positioned each object in this composition. Visit my website http://abstractartlesson.com
to be able to see the entire process where I define each value using
white conte and charcoal. I hope you enjoyed this short introduction,
this is Peter Dranitsin and until next time!
