That means its summer right? If the temperatures have any influence then it is! We were up to 100 degrees here in New Hampshire the last few days. & yes most of us in New England do not have central air-conditioning. I do however have 2 window units that were chugging along, but that were nowhere near my studio in the house.
I want to share the last two projects we did at my 5 week colored pencil class at the Sharon Art Center.
First is 3 backlit citrus inspired by the amazing Cecile Baird's work from the national CPSA exhibition in Chicago - of backlit citrus. Our attempt was done differently than her technique however - using a watercolor pencil underpainting on sand-coloured Pastelbord first and then dry colored pencil on top. It was not a very easy assignment - but take a look at those values! Wow - you guys did a great job!
& our last assignment was - white on white. We first did a grey underpainting using every shade of grey - some used cool grey, others french grey. Then we observed what colors we could see in the cup and applied them on top of the grey pencil.
I was worried this would be a hard assignment - but everyone did so well!
Thanks for a great class everyone!!!!! I really had a good time!
