tonal values & mark making with pencil

A roof lantern light and bright room lights make tonal drawing a challenge but we had a go. 
 
Ideally, chiaroscuro or the treatment of light and shade in drawing and painting is best tried in a darkened room with a strong light directed to a part of the subject. (see end of post)  We had bright room lights with daylight from above!

Next time, Plan B as soon as I've thought of it.

Well done everyone - Lovely mark making!
