Does this ring a bell?

Hi All,
After I finished the Let's Draw Course, I started a lesson/class on various techniques for shading.   My notes stop at #10 (I don't recall how many methods were presented).  I cannot find it to review and finish it.  It could have been a live lesson, but I cannot locate it on OAL either.

These were the first 9 methods I summarized:
1. Use different pencils
2. Use different pressure
3. Use finger in small circular motion
4. Use stump or Q-tip
5. Use cloth or tissue
6. Use kneaded eraser
7. Use soft brush
8. Scrape graphite with knife
9. Polishing
10. ??

 :thankyou:

it was indeed a live class on OAL on 16 June 2016.

The last item on your list is : Using a tonal chart to check that you have the correct tonal value.
