At the Zoo, Charcoal Value Sketch


This is a quick value sketch using charcoal on an index card to get an idea of the placement of lights and darks. I can tell that going toward the corner to the left of the figures, it needs to be darker while in front of the figures, there needs to be a sense of more light hitting the figures.

I wish I had your dedication for value sketches. Can't wait to see this as it progresses.

Ha, I'm guilty of not doing enough value sketches. Reading Diane Mize' blog and Sandy Maudlin's blog has made me so much more aware of the importance of a value study.
