Spend the day learning how to produce a stunning floral portrait in coloured pencil equal to that of a watercolour painting. In this botanical art workshop your focus will be a brilliantly coloured Peruvian lily, which will be broken down into simple step-by-step instructions. The drawing process will be discussed in detail and techniques such as burnishing and layering, along with accurate colour matching, tonal rendering and composition will help students master this rewarding medium and leave with a completed piece. Coloured pencils are easy to use and convenient to store and replace, making them an ideal medium. Bring a bagged lunch.
