Learn to Draw: Peacock Butterfly

Draw a peacock butterfly

About the Course

Come and join Emily Rose on a relaxing and friendly workshop in pastel pencils where she will guide you through drawing a delicate and detailed Peacock Butterfly. This beginner-friendly class, calls for vibrant colours and basic core techniques which Emily will teach you throughout the workshop. Pastel pencils are a versatile and rewarding medium to work in, Emily is a specialist in not only pastels but wildlife and you are sure to enjoy producing this Butterfly under her tuition. You will begin by learning how to transfer an image and from there will build up the painting in layers, known as an underpainting. Emily will then show you how to add the illusion realism by balancing sharp detail and soft edges, finished off with a very convincing shadow under the wings - it may just take flight!
