watch trailer

How line and value work to create form is the subject of this 3 pose charcoal drawing instructional video study. One line alone does not create as much beauty as two lines working together. Combined with value, form has boundaries and turns in space. The same tools used in figurative charcoal work can be applied to any subject. Key concepts in this video are: line quality and meaning, light and dark value, generating interest with shadow pattern, breaking repetitive form, simple forms-making a statement with the least amount of information.
