About the Workshop
Learn the secrets of turning colored pencil into a Fine Art medium…. creating works as rich and nuanced as any oil painting.
All skill levels welcome!
The focus of this workshop is dynamic dark skin tones filled with color and texture.
Jesse guides you step by step, sharing his signature style. Learn the basics of Jesse's technique to start the portrait, and get a detailed, step-by-step workbook to complete the drawing on your own.
Classes are thorough as Jesse breaks down complex rendering into simple steps. Everyone works on the same portrait as Jesse gives detailed demos and also works with students one-on-one.
The workshop includes:
Demos: A video camera on Jesse’s drawing board gives you a bird's eye view so you can follow along as you draw.
One-on-One Instruction: Jesse offers encouragement, answering questions, explaining technique and giving tips individual to each student.
Jesse provides high-quality instructional materials, including a reference photo, a tutorial booklet, and line art. Workbooks also have a complete list of colors for each section.
Students are required to provide their own drawing supplies. A materials list is distributed well in advance of the workshop.
