Portraits in Coloured Pencil, Gold Coast
Saturday March 14
Colour pencils are a perfect medium to depict human faces. Learn how to achieve smooth blending of skin colours, gradations, edge and tonal changes. Close-up studies of facial parts will also be included to gain a better understanding of how to render these difficult features. Or choose the option of animal portraits if that is your preference!
