  • pencils 2B(light) 4B(dark) 6B(darker) and 8B(darkest)

What to do:
  • Choose a still life object to draw outside. This can be a building, a chimney on a roof, a street scene or you can sit on a veranda and draw the veranda, see example above.
  • Using cartridge paper, start with a 2B pencil which will make nice light lines.
  • Once you have the basic lines on paper start filling in detail with a 4B pencil, continue shading darker areas with 6B and 8B pencils for the darkest shadows.
  • Make sure you give your drawing a 3D effect, draw in perspective.... back
