He should return to that and practice blending until he can run a perfectly graduated shade across the space. Until this simple but very important detail is mastered there is no use attempting to proceed with a combination of light and shade in design, for the effort will result in absolute failure. You might as well attempt a complex problem in mathematics when you do not know the elementary principles of arithmetic as to attempt a finished drawing without the knowledge and necessar_v practice to overcome the simplest rudiments of its composition. In "Student's" design, the cube considered by itself, you simply have a duplication of the example, Fig. 4, "Practice shading." Three plain surfaces show with slightly different shade values. There is the element of reflected light caused by the polished surface of the granite, and iii our finished corrected drawing we show you how that is handled.
