Coloured Pencils for Complete Beginners: David Lewry

"This course can either be viewed as a standalone course or a continuation from ‘Drawing for Complete Beginners’ which ran in the Autumn 2019. Coloured Pencils have become an increasingly popular medium for artists and are especially suited to beginners. Through a series of structured exercises and step-by-step demonstrations David will introduce you to this versatile medium and explain the various techniques needed. A full variety of subjects will be covered including wildlife, floral and still life. No previous experience is necessary and a list of basic inexpensive materials will be provided before the start of the course."
