Course Description

This is a one day workshop that will show you how to draw a dog portrait with coloured pencils (crayons) on coloured Pastelmat (supplied). If you are keen to use your own dog as the subject matter, please bring along a good quality photo, or an image on an ipad. Alternatively there will be copies available of the dog that Jonathan will demo. During the workshop, you will be shown how to draw fur, eyes, noses, ears, as well as other techniques such as layering, blending, texturing and colour mixing and how to work on a coloured background. This is an ideal introduction for students who would like to explore the varied skills and techniques associated with coloured pencils on the unique surface of Pastelmat. By the end of the day you will have completed one drawing. Ideal for beginners and students with some knowledge of the medium.
