In this two-day colored pencil workshop with Crystal Shin, learn techniques to see underlying colors that result in luminous surface hue and texture. Crystal will share her techniques using one of the Pacific Northwest’ s favorite spring flowers as her model… the tulip. With their elegant lines and colors, tulips lend themselves well to learning the techniques to achieve intense, vibrant color layering.
Through individual hands-on instructor guidance, beginners will be introduced to colored pencils techniques and practice new skills, while more experienced participants will have the opportunity to hone their skills.
Enjoy drawing the many varieties of this colorful spring flower, while learning to see colors and creating luminosity. The goal will be to create a finished piece of artwork.
