Botanical Subject(s): Cherries preferably with stems and even leaves and branches if available.
Workshop Description: Drawing as a Daily Meditation. Draw along with Wendy using a cherry as your subject to learn a basic procedure to use for creating a relaxing and meditative drawing practice. This technique of immediate drawing can be used on a daily, weekly, or occasional basis to provide the benefits of a meditative drawing practice. We will work on repetitive slow toning, creating 9 values from light to dark to describe highlights, midtones, and shadows. Participants will work in colored pencil and watercolor to explore creating a daily, relaxing drawing practice and at the same time getting familiar with this technique of using colored pencils and watercolor.
Our workshops include a set of pre-recorded videos for you to watch as you prepare for class, as well as recordings of each workshop session, delivered via email. We encourage collaboration and community, and we strive to create a safe virtual environment for everyone to draw together. We provide live demonstrations on the first day of a workshop and constructive critique of your work on the second day. ALL of the registration and video material for this workshop is delivered to you via email. Please be sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email contacts so that you do not miss correspondence from us!
