I prefer subjects that are enveloped in strong light and shadows for my blacklead pencil drawings and today’s post features three examples where shadows are dominant.

TOP: A cottage near Perth in Tasmania’s North.

MIDDLE: A farm-house at Upper Blessington.

BOTTOM: A cottage at Mathinna in Tasmania’s North East.

In these drawings I have deliberately used strong shadows that has resulted in the white areas becoming very dominant. I suppose you could call them examples of positive and negative drawing. There are flat areas with the bottom drawing being the only one with a variation in tone.

More tomorrow.
