Open Drawing Sessions #34 Drawing on Toned Paper
ZOOM SESSION | Wednesday | Number of Lessons: 1 | 11/02/2022 - 11/02/2022 | 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM EST
This open Drawing session is dedicated to drawing the figure on toned paper with charcoal and white chalk.
Drawing the figure on toned paper is a very efficient and fun way to create convincing volumes, capturing the luminosity of the subject and the sense of depth around it.
This technique permits also to draw relatively faster than drawing on white paper, since the value of the paper does not need to be rendered. Using toned paper makes it also easier to experiment with temperature contrast, for example, using a warm red earth color on cool blue-gray paper.
This is a very efficient and time honored technique that is indispensable for the figurative artist: think of the innumerable works that have been created during the centuries with this method. During this 2:30 hour session, we will be working using reference photos and copying few master’s works, to explore a variety of styles by old and modern Masters.
