Colored Pencil Workshop – Fox Head Study

In this workshop you will learn how to transfer a simplified line drawing onto the drafting film surface,
which is translucent, and from there begin to create a fox head study using colored pencils. Discussions will include learning more about your experience, if any, using colored pencils, and your reasons for joining the workshop. We will review supplies provided, discuss colored pencil techniques and have a question and answer period prior to beginning. Students will learn basic colored pencil usage,how to apply and blend colors onto drafting film, color choices and a few tips and tricks for turning out a beautiful fox head study. There will be discussion, guided practice and demos,as well as a workbook to take home with a step by step progression. Most importantly, this workshop will encourage interaction, a sense of humor about art and fun!


Artist Bio
Award winning artist, Cathy Choyce, has the uncanny ability to reach in and touch your animal’s soul, transferring it into a cherished work of art. Many years of hands on experience with animals, especially horses and dogs, gives the artist the ability to show their grace and strength with accuracy and attention to detail.     
Her work is noted for its realism and emotional impact. Though Cathy characterizes herself as mainly an equine or canine artist, she also enjoys painting wildlife and landscapes as well. Cathy’s ability to capture the unique qualities of each commissioned portrait has become a hallmark of her work, which has endeared her paintings to those who own them.
Cathy does both commissioned portraits and also original art, which have been juried into many nationally recognized shows. She has won several Best in Show and People’s Choice titles with both her colored pencil and pastel pieces.
Always in search of ways to improve her artistic abilities, Cathy has taken several week-long workshops offered by The American Academy of Equine Art, studying with renowned artists Kathleen Friedenberg, Karen Kasper, Barbara Oelke and pastelist Stan Sperlak. Several of her original equine sculptures were reproduced in resin for a model horse company. Her Connemara mare sculpture was featured as the cover image for the breed magazine.
“My artistic goal is to capture the visual beauty of whatever animal I am drawing with vivid emotion and expressiveness. My love of all creatures great and small is very evident in each piece I create. I can never imagine my life without animals or my art. It would be like not breathing.”
