How do you create colours that you see, in coloured pencil?
How can you mix five colours together and get sixty?
How do you choose colours or a scheme, or find that little splash of the colour, which will really set off your drawing or embroidery?
This day will help you see more colours, learn how to mix them with blending coloured pencils and create your own colour wheel with tints and shades. Learn the basic language of colour and some ways of choosing colour schemes, as well as considering your instinctive response to it. Collect things you can find around your home and outside: glazed pots, textiles, pebbles, leaves, fruit, and vegetables. We will then study them closely, learning to
see the subtlety of colours they present, and look at how to mix them in coloured pencil, watercolour pencils and other media. We will also consider what effect the background colours have and look at how colours relate.
Structure of the Day:
Login in using the link provided beforehand ready to start at 10am. We will have breaks around 11a.m. and for lunch between 1pm and 2pm.
If you want direct feedback on your work from Caroline, share your photos with her via WhatsApp or email during the day.
Please gather whatever art materials you have. These are what we recommend:
• B and 2B graphite pencils.
• a tin of at least 12 good quality colour pencils.
• Water soluble pencils will give you more options, in which case add round and flat brushes and water pots.
For anyone who wants to learn or practice their skills of drawing from close observation, a useful skill for creating your own designs. This Day Class feeds into and builds on the Drawing and Design for Embroidery 3 day course. Some basic drawing skills will be useful as we will be doing some observational drawing.
