Electricity on paper”, this is how Gerald, a student that follows my courses, described the impact that the drawings of Egon Schiele had on him, when he attended a show of his artworks.

Egon Schiele himself, had to be quite and electric personality, his body and mind in constant search for the next subject, for the next artwork to create. Like a disturbed energizer bunny.

This session is dedicated to study his unmistakable and truly unique style and to copy a few of his powerful self-portraits, with figures jagged and contorted like lightning bolts and facial expressions exuding internal turmoil.

Bring heavy stock drawing paper, white or slightly toned with a coffee wash, a few tubes of gouache and-or watercolor (red, blue, yellow ochre, black, burnt sienna and white), a round watercolor brush, 2B graphite pencil, you might also bring a few colored pencils or crayons (dark blue, dark brown) and compressed charcoal pencils, in hard and medium gradation.
