DRAWING ON TONE
Why draw on toned paper? Drawing on white moves only in one direction (from white to dark). Drawing from a tone lets you build in both directions with lights and darks. This allows you to create an illusion of light and form more quickly. It is incredibly forgiving and hides errors as your drawing takes shape. If you are a painter, drawing on tone will enhance your painting skills. Like an underpainting, the tone unifies the composition and will encourage you to develop a full value range. In addition to all of that, it's really fun!
Everyone will be met where they are and will receive the individual feedback needed to improve. This workshop includes live demos, individual instruction during work sessions and structured assignments that will build with each lesson. No prior drawing experience needed.
