We had a good time despite the fact that I tend to talk during most every minute of my workshops..... uck.... and I sometimes think I am some sort of colored pencil comedian. Not a good one mind you.
The workshop was 2 1/2 days and was meant to be a sampler of sanded supports with colored pencils so we used 3 papers and felt their similarities and differences, as well as their pros and cons. You can see my lousy lousy distorted photos below of the work we did. Not everyone finished each day, especially the portrait day, but we all got a chance to get a feel for he technique on this type of surface.
Eggs and Fabric on UART 400 using dry colored pencils.
Side-lit portrait on Fisher 400 using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.
Shiny Red Shoes using watecolor underpainting and
dry colored pencils on Ampersand Pastelbord.
I havanother workshop coming up March 14th - 15th in Portland Oregon if anyone is interested. It is a 2 day workshop so it will be similar to the one in Florida, but I'll have to mix things up a bit to fit it in the 2 days. If you are interested in sigining up email me and I'll get you to the right person to sign up. Again it is being hosted by one of the wonderful CPSA local chapters, but they are happy to have non-members join them.
