Goal: Draw drapery with photorealistic accuracy
  1. Apply what you know about chiaroscuro, shadow, hard and soft edges, and reflected light to the three-dimensional forms in folded fabric
  2. Compose a balanced drawing

Process:
  1. Hang a sheet by two thumbtacks or drape a shirt or jacket over an edge.
  2. Use colored or toned paper
  3. Block out the major shapes you see. Double check proportions and angles of contours/edges.
  4. Block in dark, middle, and light tones. Be aware of shadow edges and reflected light. Compare values to each other.The trick is to use the paper as your mid-tone, use BLACK only in the shadows and use WHITE for all the tones lighter than 50%.  Be very careful to only put the white charcoal on clean areas of your paper where there isn’t any black charcoal. If the black and white charcoal mixes they turn a very ugly grey
  5. Refine your drawing.  Keep your shading SMOOOOOOTH, no hatching or cross-hatching and NO SMUDGING!
