Terese Nielsen Workshop - Day #1 (part 1)

 Back to scenic Country Village for another wonderful weekend with the fabulous and lovely Terese Nielsen, learning about Idealized Realism in the Human Form -

 Today, there much discussion about controlling your lighting to more dramatically depict form -

Saw samples of some of her working process....

 ...And there was Terese's drop-dead *gorgeous* sketchbook of examples for us to emulate...

 To that end, there was much X-acto sharpening of charcoal pencils....


 Terese's 5-minute portrait value studies... (yum!)

Her demo of a larger, longer head study in which we all watched her wield her pencils with wonder and great interest...

 See us working hard on our own!

Terese tonal study - darks.....

Lunchin' with the teacher... :-)
