Event details

This workshop will prepare you for more advanced courses such as painting, where
colored grounds are often used as the foundation for full-color images. Halftone areas that were difficult to develop on white paper are now dominated by the color of the toned paper,
allowing for easier transitions into the illuminated portions of the subjects. The workshop will include introduction, lesson overview, drawing demonstrations and one on
one assistance and feedback. Francesco will also cover concepts such as: highlight, halftone, core shadow, reflected light, cast shadow. In this workshop you will be working on the toned paper, provided by the instructor at no additional cost.
Supply list:
