Finally get to use those water-soluble (aquarelle) colour pencils that you’ve been hanging onto but didn’t know how to utilise! Discover different ways of working with these pencils and how to combine them with watercolour paint to get the best results for your chosen subjects. Also learn about using solvents for non water-soluble pencils and how to establish an underlay to quicken the colouring process. After some short exercises and information, students will create a coloured pencil painting with a variety of wet and dry techniques.
