This class will merge basic head drawing in neutral tones (pencil and charcoal) with transferring those values into color in different mediums. New pastels, pastels, pastels/pastel pencils and watercolors will be introduced and practiced.
A great class to learn how to judge value as color and ways to manipulate the pallette to create different moods. We will work in high key, high chroma, and low chroma to enhance different portrait styles, some after Art Masters.
