Figure Drawing On Toned Paper with Juliette Aristides
Price $730 (Enrollment limited to 12 students)
All skill levels are welcome as we explore the atmospheric use of tone in this four-day figure-drawing immersion. Starting with quick drawings to create a structural foundation for your work, we will increase the length of the pose to focus on light and shadow. Using white and toned paper you will create the illusion of volume. Strong management of values in a composition is responsible for much of the power and visual impact of a work of art. Using the figure model as your subject, you will focus on structural drawing, gesture, and understanding the building blocks of tonal drawing. We will be supplementing our life drawing work with brief daily exercises from Juliette Aristides’s new book, Figure Drawing Atelier.
