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.
