Explore the atmospheric use of tone in this three-day figure-drawing immersion. You create two kinds of work: a reductive drawing where you apply the charcoal first and remove the tone to reveal a strong value pattern. Next you draw on toned paper with white, where the charcoal or pencil is built up gradually to create form. Strong management of values in a composition is responsible for much of the power and visual impact of a work of art. Using the figure model as your subject, you look at many different aspects of tone such as composition, shape, edges and contrast.
