Graham Scandrett: WORKSHOP, 18 & 25 Sept 2015

"White to Black to Light"

Week 1 - Week 2

Week 1: White on Black, 18 Sept 2015

These were workshops, not just demos, so Graham spent only a short time outlining the idea before getting us to start working ourselves.

For this first week we brought brushes and a rubber and one or more of the following in WHITE:
Pencil, conté, pastel, acrylic, ink, gouache.

Black paper and photo references were provided. The idea was to paint only the lights.
Some results follow - the first was Graham's example:

Week 2: Dark on Light, 25 Sept 2015


This second session was the reverse of last week's: starting with the darkest darks onto light paper, then toning down into the lighter greys and finally adding pastel colours if you felt like it.

We brought white or light-toned paper, Charcoal pencil, Putty rubber, pastels of any sort.

Work started as soon as Graham had finished his short demo.


I went mad with the camera but please excuse me if I missed yours. Sam
