Value studies Day 4

Daily Art 10-22-17 value and contrast - tonal composition studies

Another set of value studies on toned paper with graphite pencils and white ink. I’m spending way more time than I want just finding images to sketch. It might be that my criteria is too strict, but my goal is to use black and white photos that are simple subjects with strong value contrast. Maybe tomorrow I’ll find some simple landscapes to totally change the scale from a single, close-up object that has a fair amount of detail to a landscape. I think that would force me to stop focusing on details and see the bigger picture of the tonal composition.
