A struggle, this one. I tried to only use a dark tone, a mid tone and white. It didn’t work, though. There were only subtle changes in tone in the pepper. Perhaps I should have exaggerated them more. And then of course there are the bold lines left over from the original drawing. I should have rubbed those out abit so that the tone established itself better.
The scan really doesn’t do a good job of capturing the tones. Maybe this is a good thing. It will force me to be simpler and bolder.
