'Developing Depth with Coloured Pencil'


To create realisitc plant portraits we need to fully understand light and how it interacts with our subjects to create shaping.

  • Ann will show you how to interpret light and shade and work out accurate tonal values
  • create, rich, deep, fully saturated colour mixes
  • learn how to source realistic shade colours to give depth without dullness to your colour mixes
  • techniques for creating brilliant highlights or soft sheen and convincing secondary or reflected highlights to create a three-domensional quality to your botanical artwork
  • we will complete a series of exercises together to try out techniques and on day two start a small, simple project.

This workshop starts at 11.00 GMT and finishes at 15.00 GMT with a short 20 minute break each day. The day in between will give you a chance to try out techniques.
