Workshop: Colored Pencil Abstracts
Registration Cut-off Date: 11/9/20
Location: Artworks Gallery, 109 Fall St., Seneca Falls, NY
Instructor: Roberta Nelson
Workshop Description: Very interesting works, especially abstracts, be created by working on dark or black background paper instead of the usual light or white. Once the layout drawing is completed on the dark paper, dimensions within the various shapes are created by applying white or cream colored pencil strokes in various pressures to create highlights and medium values while the deep shadows or dark areas remain the color of the background paper. With the completion of this value drawing, colors are then lightly applied over desired areas of the various forms to finish the work.
Materials Provided by the Participant: drawing paper or pad, set of colored pencils including white, grey, and black (Prismacolor brand recommended), eraser, pencil sharpener, and a regular pencil.
Materials Provided by the Instructor: black background paper, information packets and photos that can be used for inspiration in creating abstracts.
