1. Canvas Preparation

1. Canvas Preparation

Meet your instructor, artist and workshop teacher Robert Kogge. Dive into your class with an introduction to the technique of blending ink washes and colored pencils to create complex, evocative works. Then start mixing tonal ground and applying it to a prepared canvas as you learn how the grain of the canvas will play a key role throughout your work.

2. Transfers & Value Blocking

2. Transfers & Value Blocking

Robert demonstrates how to transfer an image to canvas using an easy classical method. You'll make a light grid as you begin to block in the form, placement and relationship of your subjects, exploring a colored-pencil monochromatic study of value in the process.

3. Mixing Colors

3. Mixing Colors

Go from monochromatic work to a study in color as Robert shows you how to select, mix and experiment with a wide array of pencil colors. Learn how to apply a general local color before moving deeper into the creation of increasingly complex contours and values.
