Amy Lindenberger is returning to Beech Tree Studio’s “An Art Beat Away” Retreat again this fall to teach us her approach to working on colored paper. In this class we will be using a dark-to-light color layering technique on dark-colored paper that begins with an application of black colored pencil in the darkest areas. We then move gradually through progressively lighter-valued colors to white. Using the principle of simultaneous contrast, the dark paper provides the contrast to make the colors pop and also cuts work time significantly. This technique is featured in her newest book: CP Surfaces Volume IV: A Complete Guide to Using Colored Pencils on Colored Paper.

​Come a day early for an afternoon of hiking, followed by an authentic rural dinner experience. The retreat will heighten your skills, refresh your spirit, and brighten your day.
