OMG what fun I had at Michele Noiset's Colored Pencil class (Michele on right). I went into the class thinking "what more could I learn about pencils?" The answer: "Plenty!" Our class was two 6 hour days. Artists heaven! First day we learned techniques, the second we came in ready to start a project.
Here is the start of my project. I just love the effect of the pencils on mid-tone papers. I began with a gray paper but switched to this brown. I'll post again when it's finished.
We met downstairs in the nature lab at Rhode Island School of Design. Some of the students used the
animals, skulls or shells for objects to draw. The choices were endless!
