These are stages of a still life drawing that I did in graphite (pencil). To begin, I lightly toned the entire drawing surface (white paper) with graphite. Once basic shape relationships were in place I erased out the light shapes. I built values using subtle hatch marks without blending.
This next drawing is of a similar still life using the other halves of each pair.
The drawing was developed in charcoal and white chalk pencil on gray paper.
