Chiaroscuro involves contrasting light and shadow to create a strong composition. This will give your work drama and provides a framework to render form convincingly. To represent form it is essential to understand tonal value. Not only will this help your drawing, it is a core principle for realist painting. It is essential knowledge if you want to keep your work looking clean and unified.

The workshop begins with gesture and proportion exercises designed to give you a simple but effective approach to understanding the pose. You will then look at light and shadow design followed by half tone to represent the key masses making up the figure. This gives you a context to render the smaller forms and finally the texture, detail and edge quality.
