‘Painting Nature in Pastel Pencil’ workshops at Higher Whitley, Cheshire

 

One-day ‘taster’ workshop – Animal, Vegetable or Mineral ?

On this ‘butterfly journey’ through pastel pencil drawing you will learn some key techniques for using this versatile medium to represent the various textures of Mother Nature’s essential elements, animal, vegetable and mineral.

We will look at the important role of blending and layering to achieve such qualities as light and shade, hard & soft, rough & smooth and you will produce a small composition incorporating some of these visual effects.

£55 including starter pack of materials.

 

One-day ‘taster’ workshop – Fur & Feathers

Draw a small, detailed, pastel pencil study of a mammal or bird from photo references provided. We will use a simple method of ensuring accuracy of outline and main features of the subject and you will learn the basics of painting fur, feathers, eyes, noses and beaks to produce a good likeness of your chosen creature (i.e. mammal or bird).

£55 including starter pack of materials.

Book both ‘taster’ workshops together for the combined price of £100.

 

Dates arranged on an ‘as required’ basis for groups of up to 3 people.
