About the event

“Value" is also something that I believe is one of the most critical tools in creating a strong painting. This workshop is fun, informative and will hopefully change everything that comes afterward.

Approximate time- 4 1/2 - 5 hours and, - includes a powerpoint presentation followed by a demo and then everyone gets turned loose with a pair of red glasses (which I supply) and a handful of pastels and photo references. The photos are carefully selected to provide a simple image (so one isn’t confronted or confounded by complex details and drawing) and a full range of values. Joan


• Drawing materials, sketchbook, pencils, etc.

• Tombow brush pens (or similar) N75, N55 and black

We will be working with 4 values: white, 2 greys (evenly stepped between white and black) and black

Middle value neutral pastel paper, ½ sheet of Canson Mi-Teintes should be enough.

• Pastels if you have them (I have extra sets which I can bring)

• Reference photos if you wish although some will be supplied by the instructor.

The photos are purposely selected to provide a simple scene with a Full range of values

• Miscellaneous Materials such as:

Paper towels or wet ones for clean up.

Tracing tissue is a valuable tool, bring it if you have it.

Please bring whatever you need to be as self sufficient as possible.
