If you’re looking for something fun to do this month, I suggest a new virtual workshop with John Middick.
September 2020 Virtual Colored Pencil Immersion Workshop!
Presented live and recorded for you to view and download later.
In this workshop, you’ll be drawing on white Pastelmat paper.
The virtual workshop is on Saturday, September 19, 2020.
Saturday: September 19, 10:00am to 4:30pm (Eastern Standard Time)
Join instructor, and award-winning artist, John Middick, alongside your fellow classmates in this live, Virtual CP Immersion Workshop**.
You’ll be drawing this fresh cup of herbal tea with a lime wedge. If you’ve ever wanted to be challenged with textures, hard edges, and soft edges, all in the same drawing project, this project would certainly fill that need!
About the Project
In this live, virtual workshop John walks you through drawing a variety of textures to show texture, form, and value.
He’ll discuss how to depict glass objects and show reflections and transparency. He’ll also demonstrate how to create semitransparent layers of colored pencil to show reflection and to build up dark values.
Learn the drawing techniques used to create realistic artwork with this new art medium!
