I started a new job last week, hence the gap in blogging. All well, but everyone in the household is adjusting to a revised routine.
The Morley class this week was about tone, and capturing a likeness of an individual using only tone. I really understood this, mostly as the tutor was very helpful and started us off with very pixellated black and white photograph, so no 3 dimensional issues to contend with.
( The sketch in the upper right corner was me trying to capture the design lines on a dress that one of my classmates was wearing).
As this was charcoal, I tried to protect it on the way home and got another faint, inverted impression of the same photograph.
This was a useful lesson as it also showed me where I had not included enough contrast of tone in a couple of blocks made for the round robin challenge this month.
