Fabric Folds

In a continuation the work with tone, in the previous post and discussed in my latest video which you can see above, we focused on more work with value. This time working on toned cream coloured Canson brand paper and drawing a study of draped fabric. This is an amazingly valuable exercise in building your observational skills and technical capabilities.
 Take a look at some of the pieces mid process.
 And how the darks and lights have been treated.
 And how solutions are developed alongside the work.
 How the values are observed then pushed further.

 And softness and texture applies.

 Adding in material....
 Then taking it away...
 Building up tone and background values, and adding shadows and highlights

Until it looks as real and velvety as it feels.
