What is T onE ? …………………………… LIGHT DARK 12345678910 Shade in your grid from left to right. Each number from 1 – 10 represents the layers of applied pencil used to make the shades of tone. Example: 1 = 1 layer of pencil 2 = 2 layers of pencil 3 = 3 layers of pencil When drawing in tone consider the direction of the light. For instance Look at the right side of the red apple in the picture. It is a dark tone or shade of red. The lightest part of the orange apple is the front as this is the lightest shade of orange. Colour the tone sheet with graded tones then generate one tonal image.
T onE ? 1.Draw the simple shapes. 2.Show the light direction with a directional arrow. 3.Use your degrees of shade to create an object with form 1 2 3 4 5 6
