About the event
This is a 3 hour class (10am-1pm)
We will create a beautiful acrylic and inked background. When we are finished with our background we will bring in our focal point. Choose an image from my collection of magazines or bring your own image that you would like to use. Your image can be a person, animal, flower etc. What ever suits your taste.
Prior to placing our drawing over our beautiful background we just created, we will do a Drawing Warm-up Exercise which will help transform your drawing practice. Doing some simple line work before your start your masterpiece can make all the difference to your artwork. Your eyes and brain need some time to get going!
After our Drawing Warm-Up we will do a Quick Sketch (Gestural Drawing) for no more than 10 minutes.
We are going for speed rather than accuracy. This is a drawing exercise, we are not looking for perfection, this is just another way of loosing up. I LOVE making gestural drawings! Some of my best work comes from a quick gestural drawing.We will place our image over carbon paper and trace our image onto our background. Or, if you are comfortable drawing freehand, please do! This is a great way to train your hand how to draw an image. After you trace your image you can alter it with additional drawing and painting. With more and more practice using this technique...before you know it, you'll be drawing without tracing paper!
