Value - This chart show different shades created with different pencils. The higher the number of the pencil e.g. : 6B the darker the shade.

Have children paint a narrow strip of tone starting with white and adding small amounts of black gradually until the strip is now black. Put strips of different coloured cellophane paper over the top. This shows the tones of different colours.

In this episode of Draw Talk, we take a look at pencil grades and explain how they work and how to use them. It's really useful to know how each pencil changes with different lead graded from 8B to 2H. In this set of pencils, I cover the ones I use a lot. I hope this video is helpful to those that need it, and I look forward to creating some pencil shading tutorials for you! #pencilgrades #drawing #pintandoblog #pencil #draw
