Where the artist draw the darker areas/shadows first then gradually reducing the darkness on different areas to bring out the lighter shades and highlights?
Is this more of a painting technique as opposed to drawing? I think I’ve seen people paint oil painting this way if I remember correctly.
In addition, this technique seems to be more applicable to Charcoal and not pencils, because charcoal i guess in a way feels more like you’re painting with the broader/bolder strokes you put down on the canvas… would this be a good assessment?
It definitely seems like a very intuitive way of drawing and even has a nice workflow to it… how come there aren’t that many people using this technique?
