F-F-F-Fabric

For my final drawing 1 class I taught how to plan and execute drawn fabric.
With some basic notes on the whiteboard and a handout we formulated a plan of attack. each student pinned the draping fabric along the wall before beginning.
 First by getting a good line drawing.
 Then by toning the overall value of the drapery.
 They by emphasizing the cast shadows and adding darker tones.
 Then erasing out for highlights and cleaning up around the drawn object.
 Ii think their pieces turned out fantastic.
We had a little critique and discussion at the end. Now my little birds have the skills to leave the nest and fly. (A small tear forms)
