“Painting is drawing with the added complication of colour and tone”
Harold Speed – The Practice & Science of Drawing
In this light and shadow series we look at the theory, drawing and painting of a simple form focusing on shadow, light and edges.
Part 2 we put pencil to paper and looked at practical drawing techniques with a simple pencil drawing of an apple.
