We all talk about how we would like to improve our drawing skills. This workshop will do that. You already have most of the supplies! This four day workshop focuses on using a limited number of graphite pencils and techniques to create different textures, inserting a bird from a different reference picture, how to re-size smaller objects to fit larger ones. We'll be using a few colored pencils to draw a bird onto the stone/statue. Sign-up now and don't let this unique opportunity slip through your fingers.


A small set of Faber Castell Polychromos: light flesh, burnt ochre, cold grey I and III, black and white

You can find another set here: Amazon.
