Shading Techniques With Pencil Once you have mastered the basic pencil drawing techniques from the last tutorial, these can then be used to create different shading techniques within pencil drawings. This tutorial will guide you through the process of creating different shades and a shading guide in which you will be able to refer to throughout this tutorial. A shading guide when learning to draw is a useful tool to have, as you will be able to assess which shade is appropriate for different parts of the pencil portrait before executing it. In time, as you become more familiar with the different shades you can create, you will be able to ditch the shading guide and execute shading as though it is completely natural to you. Cross-hatching Modeling is a term that drawing borrows from sculpture to signify any graphic strategy that develops the appearance of the third dimension.

Building on the investigations of line in the early weeks of the semester, we move on to a juncture where the boundary between this most abstract of elements begins to blur into another element – value, or tone – in all of its orchestral richness.

Hong Chun Zhang: Hairy Art 30 Jul Click to enlarge Chinese artist Hong Chun Zhang, now living and working in Kansas, has found a balance between her Chinese and American artistic educations and cultures. Her painting and drawing foundation from China was very rigorous, but her content choices are now less restricted due to her US exposure. Much of her work revolves around hair, something she identifies with, and characterizes her to some degree through her own long hair, in addition to being something Zhang finds both beautiful and at times repulsive.

Zentangle® Hi All, I know this isn't watercolor, although I do combine it with watercolors sometimes, but I'm answering the question that was raised in this morning's "WASH" as to what zentangle® is. I've become a Certified Zentangle Teacher, or CZT, since I used to hang around here in WC and I just wanted to post this somewhere where those who asked the question as to what zentangle® is would see the answer.

I imagine this would normally be posted in a "Mixed Media" forum. at the boundaries between contemporary art, photography and fashion » Charcoal Drawings by Anouk Griffioen Anouk Griffioen is a Dutch artist whose charcoal drawings bridge the worlds of fashion photography and art. In a way she brings together the best of both worlds, maintaining a level of detail that respects the real subject, but with an overall aesthetic that seems to bring across emotion more powerfully than a photograph would. From certain angles it seems that the subject of the portrait is a carrier of the artists own personality – almost a self portrait within an alternate vehicle. Her portraits focus on the model’s form and expressions, and the textures and shapes formed by the clothing take an important role in the mood and composition. Ironically, at one point in her career she decided to reduce the fashion component in her drawings in order to gain wider acceptance within the art world. She found that the result was a surprising increase in the role of fashion in her work.
