We'll start in the shadow, and on the left side of the vase itself. The highlights should not be all white. I am choosing only certain of the highlights to be a true white. (Too many bright white highlights take away from the flow of the drawing.) With a clean blending stick, I'll lightly go over the highlights that I want to tone down to a 2 or 3, adding any details I see in the photo.
Now you have a beautiful, proportionate drawing of a vase!
Okay, now you have the basics out of the way. Time to pull out the big guns.
Next week: How to draw a face! (There's an easy formula that anyone can do. I promise!!)
