Reduction in Red, black, white!
Number of Lessons: 1
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
This session of “Drawing with…” is dedicated to the reduction technique using red, black and white.
Here is described, in short, the technique: Smear red earth pigment in powder or stick, over or a sheet of good quality paper. Next, block in the essential outlines of your drawing and start lifting the highlights and develop the darker values with red earth chalk. Finally, extend the tonal scale and lower the chroma using black charcoal and chalk.
This technique is particularly effective for obtaining very volumetric and luminous effects and study the effect of the light on the form, a very important technique both for drawing and painting.
