In this lesson we're going to do the 'reverse' of the Pencil Shading Exercise - Shade an Egg lesson, using a white chalk pencil or pastel pencil to shade on black paper. Your finished result will look something like this. The aim of this exercise isn't to draw a perfect oval or capture every detail, but to use the white chalk and black paper to describe the light and shade and suggest the rounded form of the egg.
