    Wow! These images are absolutely brilliant and what a fantastic teaching technique you’ve created here to get children to understand how to create a three dimensional sense in their drawing and also to understand tonal differences and how they can be used for that purpose. They are very sculptural drawings indeed and I love them!
    Absolutely stunning. Can you think of a similar exercise in charcoal drawing big? I want to draw shells big next week and would love to get simple, sculptural form in their drawings… any ideas?

    I love your methodology. Drawing is so much about seeing and learning how to know when to simplify or complicate. I will definitely teach this to my high school students. I used dry india ink wax resist with them this week to loosen-up their approach to drawing (I find the paintbrush is a great tool for this) and your lesson shows another application of the medium to use in formal ways of representation. Love the feathers as quills too.

    Thank you again.
