Realistic Pencil Drawing: Sighting - Glass of Water
In this lesson series, we’ll draw an accurate drawing of a glass of water with different grades of graphite, powdered graphite and a precise eraser. We'll use sighting and measuring to ensure accuracy in the drawing.
Lesson 1 - Materials and Sighting
In this lesson, we take a look at the materials used to complete the drawing. We use sighting and measuring to place the subjects within the picture plan and create the contour line drawing.
Lesson 2 - Bottle and Water Stream
In this lesson, we begin developing the value and texture of the bottle and water stream at the top of the picture plane.
Lesson 3 - Upper Glass and Water
In this lesson, we continue working down the picture plane, addressing the upper portion of the glass and water.
Lesson 4 - Finishing the Glass of Water
In this lesson, we complete the drawing by addressing the bottom of the glass and cast shadow behind it.
