Refined Graphite Rendering
Though graphite is generally considered to be most beneficial in producing sketches or "studies" for more complete drawings and paintings, it can also be used to produce finished illustrations suitable for publication in scientific journals. Using pencils of various densities, participants in this workshop will learn how to create a range of linear effects and crisp detail. The application of tone through the use of tortillions and graphite dust will result in drawings that "minimize the evidence of the medium" -- that is, achieve the appearance of fully-realized renderings.
