White Pencil - Workshop Recording

White Pencil - Workshop Recording

The ability to work with light is just as important as the ability to work with shadow. Light is an equally effective tool, especially if tinted paper is used. At the workshop, together, we will:


• Learn the basic principles of working with “positive space” and do simple exercises to learn how to think with light
• Look at simple techniques to create convincing three-tone sketches
• Make two sketches, step by step: Bordeaux, France, and a village street in Mexico.


The recording was made on April 2, 2022. Some parts were cut down from the original recording:
