This award-winning artist will show you the techniques involved in drawing wildlife portraits with coloured pencils. Using photographs supplied by Jonathan, you will be shown how to draw fur, eyes, noses, ears, other techniques such as layering, blending, texturing and colour mixing and how to work on a coloured background. This is an ideal introduction for students who would like to explore the varied skills and techniques associated with coloured pencils. By the end of the day you will have completed a number of exercises and at least one drawing. Ideal for beginners and students with some knowledge of the medium.
