Brilliant Floral Portraits with Coloured Pencils

This workshop will show students how to produce stunning effects in coloured pencil botanical work, equal to that of watercolour painting.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 composition will help students to master this rewarding medium. A step-by-step floral portrait will be the focus of the workshop.
Day one: The first day of the workshop will focus on developing the drawing for the floral portrait and exploring the various techniques used in coloured pencil drawing.
Day two: The second day will continue in the development process working to complete a brilliant 
floral portrait using coloured pencils.
