CLASS: “Portraits in three-part harmony…
add a little color to your life.”

This coming week you are in for a unique experience. Take the pencils by the reins and saddle up the class ‘cause Al is comin’ to town. Be prepared for a good conversation and a good time. Be prepared to enjoy an experience. Let me speak for all the guides and mods in this forum when I say that we are honored to have this man come on board and joins us for this session.

The pencils…Derwent Drawing Pencils.

Venetian Red

Strathmore Drawing Paper, 18X24 You can use something else but it must have a tooth.

I hope you can join us. Remember that be the class Basic 101 or Basic 102—all are welcome!!

Happy Drawing!!!

Thanks JayD, man of all the pics you could have used.... (ha)
Good to see some of you signing up for this. Should be fun.
As far as the pencils go. Ya need to look for Derwent DRAWING pencils. These are very different than any of the others Derwent makes. You can get them at Michaels Crafts if ya got one near by. Dick Blick also carries them and I'm sure alot of other Art shops carry them as well. Although the one I used to go to in Dayton stopped handling them. Michaels carries them in bulk or you can get the blister pack. Which might not be a bad idea for we might get into some of the other colors they have as well as the three we will be using. Anyway, here's what you'll be lookin' for.

Class will start Monday. Hope to see ya all there.

Oh, it says all are welcome! I will try to get the pencils this weekend and come sit in the circle to learn!! I have already been helped bunches by the tutorials all of you who know what you are doing have presented. I look forward to the class!!! Are we doing self portraits, need references or are we doing from references you provide?
