Drawing Realism"

During this workshop, Patrick Lee will share the specific techniques he uses to achieve a photorealistic look in the portraits he creates. He will teach other artists who are looking to accurately capture an individual or an object how to use pencil (graphite). Lee will explain his process, from approaching individuals on the street and photographing them to editing images and choosing what will hopefully be a compelling composition. In addition he will tell the stories behind his drawings in the gallery and help participants focus on how to pick subjects to draw. Drawings will be based on photographs the participants provide and will take shape over the three days of the workshop.
