Draw a Face using Shade


in this video show beginners and children how to use light and shade (tone) to draw a face. The video starts with a line drawing and shows how to set about adding light and dark tones bearing in mind the direction of light.
I describe how to light a person’s face and point out the different tonal values of the face, so beginners and children can understand clearly what they are looking at. The video is aimed at beginners, teachers and children in the later years of Primary (elementary) School and the early years of secondary schools.
