Detail of a Henry Moore, Upright motif no. 8, 1956

Whilst at the museum I couldn't resist sketching a bit of this Henry Moore,  I wanted to have a go at experimenting with tone.  I really enjoy sketching works of contemporary sculptors such as Moore and Giacometti in particular.  You get lost in the forms they create and you almost feel like you are building with them and getting a sense of what it must have been like to make these breath taking pieces.

...I need to work more on variation of tone
It was almost like molding something out of the pencil I was using on to the paper and trying to make the most of how the light hits the object.  To be honest what this example of mine demonstrates is I need to work more on variation of tone - that bit has been lost some how over the fallow years! 20161025_204027 8 October 2016, Detail of a Henry Moore, Upright motif no. 8, 1956
