Our sell-out tutor Jonathan Newey is back in 2021 with an exciting workshop that will show you how to draw a portrait of an Owl with Graphite (Lead) Pencil. Using photographs supplied by your tutor you will be shown how to draw feathers, eyes, beak and other techniques such as layering, blending, texturing and lifting highlights with an eraser. This is an ideal introduction for students who would like to explore the varied skills and techniques associated with graphite pencils. By the end of the day you will have completed a number of exercises and one drawing. Ideal for beginners and students with some knowledge of the medium.
