"Colored Pencil: Focus on the Landscape"
February 13-15, 2019

Colored pencil is flourishing as a fine art medium! It offers rich colors, non-toxic wet-or-dry convenience, easy control, portability, and gorgeous results. Render with loose gestural strokes or crisp details. These traits also make colored pencil and watercolor pencil ideal for landscape art. Kristy Kutch is an experienced, upbeat workshop instructor and author who guides her students through the steps for creating colored pencil landscape art. Her focus is on demonstrations of waxy/oily and water soluble colored pencils, with opportunities for individual questions and attention. Kristy offers techniques- some quite surprising- for rendering impressive skies, dense trees, or those craggy mountains. An abundance of free materials will be provided for the class, including rich surfaces which are colored pencil-compatible.
