AP Warm-Up Exercise
At the beginning of each school year, I give my advanced students a series of "Warm-Up" exercises to dust off their brains and fingers. This year I hauled a tub of tarnished silverware I collected from my mother's estate and started my class off with a photo realistic drawing exercise. This is my example/demo piece.
I love to draw but rarely do much black and white, graphite pencil work to show or sell. Like so many demonstration pieces, this 9" x 12" piece may never be finished but used for teaching specific techniques.
