This week’s lesson covers additional methods of adding shading to a drawing, using Ralston Thompson ‘s charcoal drawing, SAN MIGUEL ALLENDE.
In this lesson you’ll learn all about scumbling and stippling. Scumbling is erratic, squiggly, continuous lines that are great for conveying texture, motion, and a general shape without detail. Value is built up by layering lines to achieve darker tones. Stippling is a technique that uses small dots to develop value. Lighter values will have fewer dots while darker values will have a denser cluster of dots. These techniques allow you to bring textures into your art.
