Event description

Description

This class will focus on creating a fun drawing using your name or choose to give the painting away as a gift and draw one of your family member's names. Let us know what name you would like to create by Dec. 6th so Phil can have it ready for you.

Learn basic colored pencil skills using the Icarus Board as you learn layering, burnishing, and a variety of techniques of drawing with colored pencils. Phil will discuss the Icarus board, the hot and cold sides and how to use them, then he will go over the wax based colored pencils and what to expect by using the Prismacolored pencils on the Icarus Board.

Discover colors and how to mix and layer them to achieve the proper hues. He will cover the pressure needed to mix and burnish the colors and get that photographic look. With Phil's system beginners or professionals can follow along and discover how I see colors and how he makes colors. This class is to enjoy and learn about a new tool to use with wax base tools.

ARTIST
It has always been one of my passions to have my art shown at a gallery or in a magazine, to give patrons a chance to see my artwork and if for a moment while looking at my work they can escape to places off the beaten path and enjoy. This is my challenge for the present, I've taken photographs for many years, and have put them on a hard drive to easily view them. Now finally I have found my own photographic images that are worthy to be my voice to the ART WORLD!


100% COLOR PENCIL?
All my art pieces that I draw for the Color Pencil Society of America are 100% color pencils. I must say I enjoy using Prismacolor Soft Core pencils on all my art projects, I always get the desired results I need. When asked if I use solvents to blend my colors, I reply no! When asked if I have found something new to blend my colors and still create lots of layers, I say Yes! I have started to use the Icarus Board designed by a fellow CP artist Ester Roi. But who knows one day I may venture out of my comfort zone and use other tools.
