With Linda Hampson For those of you unable to attend Linda’s course in person we offer the option of accessing our library of online video tutorials. The Woodland Edge bundle is a wonderful inspiration 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 learn more of the technique. You can be assured of artworks to be proud of. If you have never put pencil to paper, you may like to try our six-part absolute beginner's course first, but this is a simple progression. 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. If you get hooked see our growing range of other ONLINE courses or visit us in person for a course at The Old Kennels!
