Jennifer Behymer Charcoal Sketching Demo

November 2022 Charcoal Sketch Demo with Jennifer Behymer

The BVAA is excited to bring you a hands-on workshop with Jennifer Behymer on sketching with charcoal. You can just watch if you’d like, or you can give it a try!

Come enjoy a charcoal sketch demo of a seasonal landscape scene. Charcoal is a versatile medium that can capture a wide variety of value ranges quickly and efficiently. The demo will help you explore ways to capture the essence of light and shadow in your landscapes with a variety of textures and methods.

If you’d like to bring your own materials, recommended supplies:
Nitram Charcoal soft (B), medium (HB), & hard (H) (Or charcoal of your choice)
Kneaded eraser
Toned paper – 1/2 or 1/4 sheet Mi-Teintes or pad of pastel paper 
Blending stump
Paint brushes for blending

If you don’t have materials, the BVAA has some basic supplies that you could borrow. Alternatively, Jennifer is happy to make up $5 baggies with the supplies, for those who would love personal kits they could take home to keep playing with it.

If people prefer to work in graphite, bring your pencils and sketching supplies and that works too!

Jennifer will bring copies of a reference photo to work from.
