THE LAYOUT Test the method's power and expand your drawing repertoire as you locate those critical reference points and transfer them to your drawing paper for pinpoint accuracy. By breaking up this landscape into easy-to-manage shapes, you'll give yourself the upper hand from the very first stroke! ESTABLISHING THE BACKGROUND In these three classes, Darrel will guide you through the process of creating the billowing clouds in the distance and the forlorn windmill standing sentinel. "BUILDING" THE HOUSE Starting with your 4H pencil, you get to slowly build it up, creating dimension at every step. This ramshackle dwelling offers the unique opportunity to capture the textures of the rough-hewn and broken boards, to render light and dark areas effectively as the light weaves in and out of the gaps and holes, and to replicate the effects of nearly a century of wear and tear. DRAWING REALISTIC GRASS The sweeping prairie landscape surrounding this "fixer-upper" is the perfect opportunity to learn how to draw grass! This simple but effective addition opens up your drawing, creating more life-giving depth and dimension. FINE TUNING Are your values balanced? Have you clearly established all of the highlights? What about the excess graphite around the perimeter of your drawing-have you cleaned that up? Answer all of those questions and more in these two classes. THE FINISHING TOUCHES It's time to make any last-minute adjustments, add your signature, and call it a job well done.
