Pastel Drawing by Joe MacKechie
Drawing with Color using Pastels with Joe Mac Kechnie
Sunday, September 9th, 2012
at 12 pm & 2 pm - FREE demos!
Once you have developed your drawing skills using black and white techniques, you are ready to move on to using color mediums. Using color successfully can take months and years of training and practice to master, especially if you want to use oils, watercolor and or other mediums. However, pastels can be used with little training and are a natural progression from black and white drawing materials. You will ultimately need to master color mixing (for oils, etc), but you can do this while you are already creating powerful works with pastels.
Art instructor and artist Joe Mac Kechnie will introduce you to basic pastel techniques and why he believes pastels are the perfect next step after learning to draw. In his demo, Joe will show you how you can create a charcoal drawing and then add color to it. He will also show you how to use color pastels to create the same drawing without using charcoal. Some color theory will be introduced.
