Colored Pencil Workshop with Sarah Becktel
Workshop 2, Colored Pencil with Mixed Media, has begun! In this FREE online course, artist Sarah Becktel will guide you through four video lessons demonstrating how to create art with colored pencil as the primary medium. Sarah will then introduce techniques for adding solvents, watercolor, acrylic and ink to enhance and accentuate artwork while still maintaining the look and feel of colored pencil.
You'll be able to see all four lessons here:
Here’s the schedule – all videos will be posted on their start date at 9:00am CST:
In lesson 1, you'll be getting acquainted with the materials and techniques that Sarah will be using throughout the workshop. She'll be doing short demonstrations in this lesson, and then you’ll focus on each medium in more detail during the next 3 lessons.
In this lesson, you will be focusing on techniques for combining pen and ink with colored pencil and fluid acrylic. Sarah will also be referencing value, which refers to how light or dark something is. A value scale applies numbers to each value with 1 representing white and 10 representing black. As the numbers increase, the value gets darker.
