This week’s Diva Challenge is a great follow-up to last week’s straight lines challenge. Since it is orbs, I decided to stick just with orbs so I didn’t I didn’t check my usual places for focus tangles. I varied the orbs sizes and even made some black.
Here’s my tile before shading.
I toyed with blackening in the center of the orb on the right or possibly stippling it instead. I also considered cross-hatching but that would involve lines.
I ended up stippling the center, thinking that if I didn’t like it I could always blacken it in.
I wasn’t thrilled with the stippling and thought I’d shade it a bit before blackening it in. After adding the graphite, I liked it better and since I was uncertain how it would look if I blackened it in, I decided it was fine the way it is.
I don’t have the whole orb shading thing down very well yet but I’m getting better.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll leave me a comment but either way, have a great day.
Until next time, God bless,

I think your shading is spot on. It makes the whole piece come to life.
Again, the shading does the ‘trick’!
