Still life. Exercise 2. Still Life in tone using colour.

This exercise looked at representing different tones using completely different colours.  I found it difficult and feel my drawings lack confidence. I chose to use oil pastel which I didn’t really enjoy.  I find the lack of fluidity frustrating.

After completing these pieces I put together a much simpler still life which helped with identifying different tones. I also used pastel chalks which I found easier to handle than oil pastels


The exercise helped me look for similar tonal values across the whole picture.
