Coloured Pencil Drawing with Michael Spillane

May 11 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

A stunning step-by-step project featuring an apple will be the focus of the day. Coloured pencils are easy to use and convenient to store and replace, making them an ideal medium for both beginning students and experienced artists. The drawing process will be discussed in detail and techniques such as burnishing and layering, along with accurate colour matching, tonal rendering and composition will help students master this rewarding medium.
