This two-day workshop will introduce students to a truly versatile medium and show them how to produce stunning effects equal to that of watercolour. Easy to use and convenient to store and replace, coloured pencils can be used alone or combined with graphite. Techniques such as burnishing and layering, along with accurate colour matching, tonal rendering and compositional layout, will help students to master this rewarding medium.

THREE LEARNING OUTCOMES OF THIS COURSE:

1) Students will have gained a solid understanding in how to develop their skills going forward in botanical art using coloured pencils.
2) Students will also come away from the workshop having learned a variety of methods and systems applied to drawing, matching colour, composition and colour pencil techniques.
3) Students will learn about contrast and value systems and how to create strong, three-dimensional drawings.
