Floral Still Life on Black Paper

October 16 & 17, 2021

9 am-4 pm

Colored pencil drawings are traditionally created on white or light, neutral-colored papers. But some subjects are much more effective against very dark backgrounds, and those backgrounds can be difficult (and labor-intensive!) to achieve with colored pencil. In this two-day workshop we’ll explore key techniques for using colored pencil on black and very dark-colored surfaces, to keep colors true and luminous. The vase of flowers is an excellent subject for this technique, as the vibrant hues of the flowers in the vase, rendered with only a few colors, add a lovely balance to the reflection of light seen in the vase itself.

Location: Schoolcraft College, 18600 Haggerty Rd, Livonia, MI. Classroom location will be emailed at a later date. Bring your own lunch. No video provided.
