Learning to draw a still life can be daunting but if you’ve seen first two tutorials you should be drawing brilliantly. This is the final video in my series on How to Draw a Still Life Accurately. This time I am concentrating on adding tone; light and shade. I am using two pencils; 2B and a 6B and a 4B piece of graphite. I explain how dark tones make light tones stand out, how to shade in a very subtle way using the side of the pencil. I also show how to create the subtle reflections from a shiny surface on to the bottom of two eggs. I also show how important it is to create edges to define objects rather than using outlines.
This art tutorial is aimed at secondary school children and those wishing to improve their drawing skills.

Are you an Artist?
At Paul Priestley’s Art World, we believe being an artist is a twofold process. It’s a combination between skills, techniques, creativity and the ability to see things in a way others often can’t. Some people become obsessed with learning the techniques of drawing and painting, but that only takes you so far. You also need the passion and the creativity to experiment and make mistakes.
You will become an artist if …
You remember that no one in the world draws and paints like you do. Be proud of the fact. As an artist seek an individual vision, and don’t let anyone say you haven’t got that. Paul Priestley art tutorials are taught with lots of passion, creativity and with a simple step by step approach to drawing that will inspire everyone. Our art tutorials will help you create your individual vision.
