Details

Discover the wonderful world of coloured pencils and learn how to create rich and colourful drawings of all things botanical - flowers, fruit and vegetables - all without adding water to the painting! This course is for all levels of ability and is designed to show the simplicity and the effectiveness of using wax and oil based coloured pencils (not watercolour pencils) to create beautiful botanical drawings. During the course we will dedicate time to the actual drawing of the chosen subject, the composition of the picture and the basics of using coloured pencils. This will include: - Proportions - How to make the subject 'interesting' - Using coloured pencils correctly - Learning how to blend colours - How to create different textures and surface areas - How to make the subject look 'real'. We will also look at paper types and the way the pencils behave on them, together with other 'aids' useful to the coloured pencil artist.

Janie Pirie is one of the leading coloured pencil artists in the UK. She is member of the Society of Botanical Artists and has been awarded their Gold Medal for her work
