Drawing With... Egon Schiele #21

$40.00

More appropriately, I should have called this session “drawing and painting with Egon Schiele”, since the artwork we are going to copy was executed with gouache, watercolor, and black crayon or pencil.

Egon Schiele was incredibly prolific and creative, he produced an incredible number of drawings, sketches, and paintings. His works are powerful, raw, and incredibly intense, his style is unique and it is impossible to confuse it with somebody else work. Schiele died at 28 of the Spanish flue, who knows what he could have accomplished had he lived a long life?

In this session we will honor the work and explore the technique of this genius of expressionism, copying two of his works: “Sitting Lady with raised knee’ and “Green stockings”.

 

Materials: the original works are executed with watercolor, gouache, and crayon or pencil.

If you don’t have a gouache, you can just use watercolor. We will need these colors (either gouache, watercolor, or both: red earth, yellow, ochre, green (possibly viridian or emerald), black and white. Black crayon or graphite pencil (2B) or charcoal pencil (Generals will do) in medium gradation. A couple of sheets of 140-pound Cold press watercolor paper or heavy stock drawing paper that can withstand water media, kneaded eraser, sandpaper, or pencil sharpener.
