Drawing is the alphabet of all good art. A successful painting is based on an accurate drawing. Drawing as an art in itself requires a long period of dedication. In this workshop, Wendy will be concentrating only on the areas of drawing that support good painting habits. She will go through how to use values, lines vs planes, space relationships, constructing 3D objects on a 2D surface, thumbnails and notans, and 1 point perspective. These are the knowledge base necessary to create a great looking painting and knowing these elements of drawing will make painting much more enjoyable.
