NOTAN, A MEANS AND AN END
Description: A one-day workshop to better understand the importance of design in painting.
Using photographs with strong light and shadow we will utilize the Japanese art of NOTAN to better understand design, value and light and shadow. Understanding these principles always makes for stronger paintings.
You will need 2 or 3 black sharpies. 1” square tip, ¼” beveled tip and a medium sized round tip
2B pencil and sharpener (or blade)
A few sheets of tracing paper
A pad or a few sheets of fine tooth, or smooth drawing paper
3-4 good, clear photographs size 8 ½” x 11” ANY subject, black and white or color – but it MUST have STRONG light and shadow
We will learn a lot! I look forward to sharing this day with you.
