Nature Drawing – Leaves: Drawing the Third Dimension When Your Subject Looks Flat
Learn to create the illusion of volume when your subject appears 2-dimensional. In this workshop, led by artist and author Linda S. Gribko, you’ll learn how to suggest the subtle highs and lows of the surface of a leaf using a graphite pencil. Using differential shading and cast shadow, you’ll create a drawing of a leaf that seems to rise up from your paper and appear lifelike. You’ll also gain confidence in rendering enough detail to create a realistic drawing without getting hopelessly lost in the minutiae. Materials will be provided or bring your own if you prefer. Ages 14 and up. $25 for WVBG members, $35 for non-members.
* This workshop is part of our Arts in the Garden series, which is funded through a Community Arts Grant, made possible by the City of Morgantown and Monongalia County Commission through a collaborative effort between YCF and Arts Mon.
