Chiaroscuro Tangling | Class Recap

In these sessions, we focused on the technique, Chiaroscuro (kee-AR-ə-SKOOR-oh) (Sub-titled “Fun with Tan (or toned) tiles). During the Renaissance period, a drawing technique called Chiaroscuro emerged in the fine art world. These types of drawings were done on subtly colored or toned paper, usually gray or tan. Using the paper as a neutral starting point, the artist would then use white pencil or paint to work towards light or to create highlights and then use black ink and graphite to work towards dark or create shading, also creating a 3D look.
