Drawing with Reduction Technique!
Number of Lessons: 1
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
The reduction technique, also called subtractive technique, focuses on the light effects on the form: with this technique, the forms of our subject are not defined with outlines, but with areas of value. To do so, we start with a sheet of drawing paper toned with a dry pigment, such as charcoal or Cretacolor powder pigment. The pigment is then gradually removed with various erasing tools, to obtain tonal effects. With this technique, we can obtain very volumetric effects, and it is perfect to study the effects of the light on a subject. This technique, along with the Trois Crayon method I recently offered, is fundamental for any representational artist.
