|Charcoal and pale grey conte crayon in sketchbook.|
Looking at it now I can see that there needs to be more of a middle tone behind the trees and sign.
Also that there should be at least one person or dog!
Sketchbook variations exploring tone and colour
|Lake with ducks - tone only, using black and silver pencils on white paper|
|Lake with ducks using temperature of colour only|
The green was a little darker than the blue which complicated matters.
Putting in the yellow showed the highlights which were not in my 'tone' sketch above.
|Lake with ducks using tone and mark as suggested by tutor.|
Lost a bit of tone with the detail again, especially at the edge of the water.
Enjoyed doing the water this way. Could try doing clouds like this too.
