Basic Drawing: Shading without Outlines


Learn to draw rocks on a beach by using shading and not outlines. This basic drawing tutorial explains how to look for the shapes in what you are drawing. In this case drawing rocks on a beach starts by drawing shapes using tone. Creating a tonal range and edges not outlines can make the drawing look much more convincing. To draw with tone and shading you must hold the pencil differently, so that the drawing can be done with the side of the pencil and not the tip.
