In this video, Cesar Santos shows how to use Nitram Liquid Charcoal to draw with liquid charcoal. Yeah, that sentence might not make any sense until you watch the video.
I received a new tube of Nitram’s Liquid Charcoal to try it out. I decided to share my attempt with you all. Here is a time lapse demonstrating the whole process from start to finish of how I draw with Nitram’s liquid charcoal.
Lesson 1: Materials and how to use them for charcoal drawings
Lesson 2: Still life drawing to learn basic techniques such as contrast, shading, blending, and layering
Lesson 3: Drawing realistic animals in charcoal
Lesson 4: Drawing a realistic portrait in charcoal
Not sure if you want to commit until you learn more about how these online workshops work? Workshops are self-paced. You participate when you want. A month prior to the start of each workshop (there are 3), you can visit the workshop page for a supply list. Registering is optional, but if you create an account you can get an email reminder, participate in the forums (where participants and the instructor can answer your questions), and share your artwork. Then, simply visit the workshop page for links to video lessons and instructions. The video lessons and instruction sheets will remain on the site for viewing throughout the entire year so you can follow along at your own pace, and reference the class all year long! If you’d like, you can read more about the Online Workshops. Hope to see you in class!
