  • Portrait Drawing with Colored Pencil

    Reviewed by Patricia D. on 7/5/2023
    I am always happy with class at the Y. This was particularly rewarding because, very small , 5 students. I learned a lot about color & was encouraged to develop shades of various colors from the primary colors & then learned about all the color pencils & how to apply them. Ie. The old masters pallet. We had demos. To demonstrate Application of color to portraits . Also worked on portraits. As usual we had an excellent model & one can’t do a good portrait without a good model. Nancy J. is a hands on teacher who try’s to give you space to develop style BUT ( you better get those measurements correct) All done with patience from a teacher who has tremendous talent. Love workshops ! Would like more of them. Would also like pay for the day ! I can’t always be in NY . But would love to attend a class when there.
