Adding a range of values
Once each student had demonstrated that they could successfully complete a value scale, they looked at their bird photo and began to draw the contour of the bird and any background objects in the photo. The contour is the outside shape where the line bends to create the edge of the object. The students used a regular school pencil and then had the choice of ebony pencil, school pencil or both as they began to add a range of values.
Here we can see Madelaine using an ebony pencil to add values to her drawing. We can also see Jessica B's completed value chart on the side of the picture.
