What's Included

Based on an article by the instructor, featured in The Artist’s Magazine, Oct 2012! Learn a fast and easy illustrator’s technique, adapted to new products. Colored pencil and/or pastels go over a tonal underpainting on a textured ground. You’ll use a single color of oil paint to establish the light and shadow pattern, and the dry media for the details. A practice project will get you started, and then you can develop your own choice of subject. Bring your own colored pencils and/or pastels (we’ll share what you don’t have in class) and a couple of brushes. All the special products -- oil paint, odorless mineral spirits, clear gesso, illustration board, cotton swabs -- will be provided. Supply list: Colored Pencils: Artist quality, your choice of brands, set of 12 or larger (sets to share will be available in class) Any size set of pastels 2 paint brushes: a stiff bristle brush for acrylics (a #8 or 10 flat or bright is recommended) and for oils (#4 flat, bright or filbert). The oil brush can be bristle or a softer one. Graphite pencil Kneaded eraser, plus any other erasers you may like to have Paper blending stump or tortillon
