In week six, instructor Iliya Mirochnik will demonstrate how to add half-tones and highlights to your still life drawing. You will learn to use mark-making and blending to transition from your shadow mass to light mass. This step will lead you to a complete drawing. At the end of the lesson, Iliya will also show you how to stretch paper in preparation for next week’s project.
