Great news! ‘The Artist’ magazine have published a great article to help you with your drawing…and all with Nitram Charcoal!
The article as you can see is described as ‘The Finer Points of Art…’ and this may seem like a bit of a contradiction since charcoal sticks are big lumpy things – are they not more suited to expressive drawings and sketching?
Not so! Throw that idea out of the window…along with your old lumpy charcoal! Nitram Charcoal (made in Canada) have created lots of different thicknesses and grades of charcoal from soft to hard so that all manors of creative possibilities are achievable with their consistently fine grade charcoal.
Here’s a photo of Patricia Adolph from Nitram Charcoal working on her latest still life using the New Wave TIMBr Pad. Pat said “I really like the durability because I can use the palette over several days!”
When designing our new offices for Nitram I wanted to include a space dedicated to “doing and learning” art.
We finished the renovations recently and had our first life drawing class on Thursday, March 31, 2016.
The session started with some quick sketches to loosen up.
In this book, one of today’s leading figurative artists shares techniques and approaches for drawing the human form. With a reverent grounding in the methods of the Old Masters and keen perspective developed over Jon DeMartin’s 20+ years of making and teaching art, this comprehensive book focuses on the power of line and how it can be used to achieve a convincing sense of dimension and life.
Brock Alius was born and raised in Utah. After dropping out of the local university due to a frustrating lack of clarity in their teaching methods, and studying with other local artists only to find the same frustrations, Brock was fortunate to find local artist Ryan Brown.
