Assignment 4- Figure Study using Tone


The aim of this assignment was to use coloured pencils to capture tone to create a real sense of form and atmosphere of a reclining figure.

Assignment 4 -Tone


Reclining Figure- Coloured Pencil and Gouche on A1 paper

This drawing was influenced and insprired by the work of Graham Little’s use of Gouche and Coloured pencil within his work. Without knowing Graham Littles specific technique, I wanted to use gouche as a background wash to create atmosphere and then coloured pencils to get the final depths of tone.
