This workshop is for anyone wanting to brush up on the nuts and bolts of translation. Artist Rick Fox will share the tools and techniques that he uses to manage information.
Want to see and organize more realistically? Want to fill in gaps and gain confidence to break from realism? Over the two days we will be taking on the big issues that arise when processing information from the 3-D world onto to the 2-D surface.
Toolbox demos will include: 1 + 2 point perspective, sighting angles, points of articulation, using horizontals and verticals, proportion and relationship, the rectangle and harnessing edges.
2 pencils, vine or willow charcoal, black conte crayon, hard plastic eraser (Staedtler), large white paper (18×24”)
