Draw the five Ideal Solids, one or two per page using graphite pencil in your sketchbook. Address light and volume by employing parallel hatch that follows the cross-contours. Show your mark-making, avoiding smearing and smoothing out the values with your finger or paper stump.

The mark-making should be complementary to the form. Notice how the marks follow the curvature of the ellipses within the cone and cylinders. In the cubes the lines follow the vertical lines and the diagonals. An opposing diagonal is only added to darken the value. The cast shadows are drawn with horizontal lines to address the flatness of the ground plane or table top.
