A word from Carl… 

I am going to treat this workshop as a drawing for painter’s workshop. The first part will be in seeing shapes and how to assess them correctly, and the second part will be about doing drawings with paintings in mind-planning the arrangement of shapes in a format.

With that in mind here is a list of materials that you will need (Click to Download Pdf):

  • HB and 4B drawing pencils (quality of graphite varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. I have found Mars Lumigraph to be excellent.
  • Sketchbook 9 X 12. Smooth surface
  • Kneaded eraser
  • 4 X 5 rectangle of mat board or very stiff poster paper.
