Thank you Ohn Mar for this amazing class! I learned a lot, and using the toned paper for this, to focus solely on shadows an highlights is brilliant. Of course I got carried away a couple times, but this is work diving in, I am glad I did!
And with the full apple before cutting it:
The full apple isn't in the photo, because I ate it before I could take a picture of the apple with the drawing!
Grapes and Apples together:
Totally messed up the highlight on this first onion, I think. I went to hard on the white acrylic on the right, and forgot the stem. And the shadow is weird.
Until here I used a 2-3 mm 'paint pen' black marker from Colozoo, as well as white acrylic paint with a brush for the highlights.
Garlic: here I decided to use a Sakura Gelly Roll 10, much finer for the white lines on the garlic. Same black marker for the shades.
And a cup, seen from 3 vantage points, using the Gelly Roll and the black marker:
Lessons: the more I practiced, the more I could see the highlights and shades. I loved drawing the shades, but they all lean in different directions, because I did this whole projects at different times of day!
Also, it forced me to bypass the details, which for me is a challenge!
My favorite of the 5 studies, is the one with the garlic!
