Meet the artist and teacher
Phil Zubiate is a professional artist with over 40 years of experience in the commercial art world and now has started to teach art to help others enjoy the experience of drawing. His greatest strength is his ability to see shapes in the most difficult images and simplify the composition, making it fun, formative, and completely accessible for anyone to draw! His first love has always been drawing with pencils, the use of a 2H and HB pencil to sketch out the drawing lightly and once that is done the fun begins; filling in the  textures, shadows, and highlights.

Glass of Water

Drawing with Phil Zubiate

Saturday, March 10th 10am - 1pm

$57 each includes all supplies

Pouring water in a glass, textures are always hard to draw and in this drawing I would like to show you how to draw a glass, water, and plastic bottle using just five pencils. I will show you how to keep track of refraction lines and curves where light bends inside the glass, bottle and water. We'll start with the major outlines and major refractions. We will use different pressures for the different suggested subtle shifts in value and very sharp points for the shadow areas and light pressure for the rim of the glass. Lastly adding a middle-value along the sides and base to give the contrast a finished touch.
