Check Out This Tip From Strokes of Genius 2: Chapter 6, Still Life:

Sight-Size Method for Classical Results
This drawing was done using the sight-size method. For this method, the still-life subject and the drawing surface are set up side by side. I positioned myself a view spot six feet (183cm) away from and centered exactly between the still-life setup and the parallel drawing surface. This drawing method require a process of measuring and comparing the objects in the still life, always from that view spot, and then rendering those measurements onto the drawing surface. I first created a very accurate line drawing of each object in the still life using fusain nitram soft charcoal on Canson Mi-Teintes paper. Then I slowly built up the values until I achieved as a full a value range as possible using that same media. This still life took about 250 hours. Familiar objects take on an air of mystery and poetry rendered in shadowy black and white; this one suggests a miniature fantasy landscape. Rob 4 is named for Rob Anderson, who taught me the sight-size method at the Atelier School of Classical Realism in Oakland, California.—Carol Kummer
