Drawing | Red, Black and White Chalk Pencils on Coloured Paper with Dominique Millar

Course Overview

Before the invention of the modern graphite pencil in the late eighteenth century, the most common dry medium employed by artists to draw with came from naturally occuring chalk deposits. Red, black and white chalks were the materials employed by Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian, Rubens and Rembrandt. Learn how the Old Masters employed this sensual material on a coloured paper ground, to describe so-called “warm” and “cool” values. All aspects of the lesson will include one on one tuition and regular group demonstrations. Suitable for beginners to more experienced.
