In this six week class you will use charcoal and gouache (gwash) to make painterly drawings of still life subjects or interiors. This is an experimental drawing class where you are strongly encouraged to express your vision of the subject throughout the process.
The still life subjects will be set up and lit from one side for dimension and could be your choice or the instructor’s. Photographs will be used for interior subjects (yours or the instructor’s as you wish). You will draw the subjects with charcoal on tinted or white paper and add accent color and tonal areas with gouache paint.
You will choose a range of color accents to enhance your mostly tonal drawings. Your paper selection will add to the color, texture and tonal appearance of the final drawings.
Media to be used – charcoal sticks and gouache paint on kraft, pastel or watercolor papers.
A materials list will be supplied.
