Still Life with Pear Drawing


Artist: Lela Stankovic
Medium: drawing
Size: 11 x 14 inches

My drawing process

  • – I lightly draw a pencil outline of the entire composition.
  • – Then choose one section to work on at the top right corner ( I am right handed).
  • – Emphasize the darkest lines, and details.
  • – Fill in the areas in between with various value ranges.
  • – Then move down to the next section.
  • – Occasionally, I use a cloth wrapped around a paper stamp to blend graphite, or use a kneaded eraser to lift and obtain lighter values. Why cloth? A blending paper stick becomes very quickly covered with graphite, while cloth can always be re-positioned and be clean.
  • – Materials used: Stonehenge 100% cotton, 250 gsm paper, and graphite pencils – mechanical 0.5 mm pencil 2B, HB, and wooden sketching pencils 6B, and HB.

  • How to Register & Sign In

     

    Option #1: If you have used "Sign in with Google" button to register the first time, you are welcome to continue using Google for future sign in also. Google does not send PADT website your password - so PADT in this case does not store any password for you.

    I would recommend using this method as the best way to register and also to sign in to PADT.

     

    Option #2: If after you have registered using "Sign in with Google" button - and then later you want to sign in directly - you will have to click on the "Forgot your password" link at the bottom of the login form which will send you a mail (with a link) to create a password for PADT website. You can choose a password (which can be different from your Google password), and you can use it to sign in directly in PADT website with your username/email and new password. However you will continue to have the ability to sign in with Google whenever you want.
