Art Class Update : Week 4 - Measuring & Tone

This week I wasn't too thrilled at the start when given a still life to draw. I often get impatient and my attention span wavers when having to concentrate on odd objects! This week was learning about measuring and tone. I often sketch quite quickly and then with a big huff and declaration that i've had enough move on before really working into tone. 

Our tutor this week Isabell advised on the importance of standing back, taking a look and asking the questions; is that the right size? Which is the lighter tone? The darker tone? She also showed me how to translate the quick sketch I'd made into a much deeper tonal piece.
