This focused drawing workshop will cover drawing correctly from nature as a basic skill and foundation to good painting. Students will work for a live model while learning to represent the figure in charcoal and white chalk on toned paper. Students will work alongside the instructor as each stage of the process is explained and demonstrated. Emphasis will be on gesture, proportion and the character in order to represent the visual impression of the sitter and their environment. Observing specific values and shapes in combination with anatomical elements will help you develop your ability to think as a painter.
