This two-day, in-person workshop, taught by architectural illustrator David Genther introduces the techniques of Beaux-Arts wash rendering. Begin by learning the basic skills needed to produce a traditional ink wash rendering of a Doric column capital. Then, develop an understanding of the qualities and characteristics of light, shade, shadow, and reflected light, as well as a sensibility for how architectural geometries, forms, planes, and profiles modulate light and shade, and subsequently render form apparent.
Note: Masks are required. Costs includes most materials. Bring drafting equipment if you have it. At the very least a ruler to use as a straight edge and a pencil. You should bring any and all brushes you own, but two brushes are required and essential to completing the drawing. These are Kolinsky Sable Round watercolor brushes #4 and #8. They can be purchased here:
#4 Princeton 7050
#8 Princeton 7050
