In this workshop, Kathy will teach participants how to produce a realist charcoal drawing on canvas, primarily using tone rather than line, in order to ‘sculpt’ the picture. Kathy will conduct on-going demonstrations and assistance to students throughout the two days. This includes showing participants how prepare the subject image and canvas with grids in order to accurately transpose the image to the canvas; and providing them with opportunities to watch her create a finished picture, as she explains her technique.
