Q&A with lorettaje164741

Patrick Connors asked:
Hello lorettaje, I want to know a few things before I make the critique. How big is your drawing, what were the hardnesses of the pencils, were you working "plein air" [outdoors from nature] or from another source, and did you use any of the drawing tools introduced in the course? One thing to note now is that you are working on a midtone ground [the paper has a particular tone or value to it]. This can be a lovely thing to do but remember you reduce the chiaroscuro structure accordingly. In another words, the range from light to dark is less than when you work on white paper. In doing so you may compromise your spatial structure. You chose an ambitious challenge, something we will deal more with in Lesson 7. It is hard to resist toned paper, when drawing, I almost always work on it. One thing you will need to consider is adding white chalk. Don't do that now but on the next drawing.
