Setting up class product to begin watercolor pencil workshop. Each student was given a sheet of Strathmore Smooth Bristol, a set of watercolor pencils, Inktense pencils, drawing pencil, sharpener, eraser, carbon paper, image to work from and other needed incidental products.
A friendly class. Students wore nametags to help break the ice – and learned a bit about each other as the product was being distributed.
Product inclusive workshop!
CJ explained how important it is to get the drawing right before you begin painting. Everyone began by drawing the image onto the paper.
Before painting began, CJ taught the class about the basic nature of the w/c and inktense pencils. Everyone created a test chart before beginning.
CJ answered color and technique questions
Everyone begins creating their drawing of a porcelain cup from a photo provided byCJ
Students used their color charts to select the correct colors and pencils for their painting
Everyone created a fine little antique porcelain cup and saucer. CJ suggested the finished product could be matted in oval mats and backed with velvet and placed on a wide ribbon to be hung during the holidays or given as a gift. They could be matted and framed in a traditional manner as individual pieces. The paper can be further trimmed and slipped into specialty greeting card stock with a slide in window.All product can be found at Arizona Art Supply
