Module 2 Chapter 1: Tonal Study

Tonal Columns

I really enjoyed doing these tonal columns.  I got so carried away that I forgot to put rubber gloves on before working with waterproof ink, so went around with black fingers and nails for a day or two afterwards!

2.1.1 Tonal Columns

Column 1 was black ink dabbed on with a crumpled tissue.
Column 2 was pieces of newspaper glued on.
Column 3 was lines drawn with a felt pen and brushed with water afterwards.
Column 4 was printed with the edge of a piece of card with black ink.
Column 5 was black ink dabbed on with a cotton bud.
Column 6 was dots drawn on with a felt pen.
Column 7 was very diluted ink dabbed on with a soft paintbrush, getting more concentrated as I went down.
Column 8 was charcoal.

I then tried some of the special effect brushes on Photoshop to make shaded columns on the computer.
