Sketching Skills

On Friday Mrs Geary, who came to teach us some sketching skills, visited Year 5. We started by exploring the different types of pencils and what effect they would have on a sketch. We learnt about H pencils and B pencils and that using different types and numbers would make our sketches darker or lighter. We then began to create a swatch sheet, which we will build up over the next few weeks. We started with hatching and cross-hatching and looked at how they could be used to build tone and shade sketches. We experimented using different numbered H and B pencils. Mrs Geary then tasked us to add some tone and shade to everyday items such as water bottles and apple using cross-hatching and hatching skills only
