Apple – introduction to botanical coloured pencil drawing at The Old Kennels
With Linda Hampson Member of the SW Society of Botanical Artists For those of you unable to attend Linda’s course in person we offer the option of joining us online. The Apple course is a wonderful taster for those of you who itch to draw, but just aren’t sure where to start. It is equally interesting for improvers who might want to go back to basics as a reminder of the simplicity of the technique. You can be assured of an artwork to be proud of at the end of this lesson. We invite you to share your outcomes with Linda and of course be in touch if you have any concerns or need help by email for the duration of the course. Coloured pencil is a marvellously versatile medium and it is genuinely an easy medium to master when you have learned the basic techniques. Linda invites you to join her for a series of workshops specifically using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. You will learn how to layer and blend and various other ‘tricks’ in this easy introductory lesson. Complete beginners and improvers will enjoy this ‘back to basics’, simple, but very impressive apple drawing technique. If you get hooked, progression courses are also available.
