a new local course in kent - deal botanical coloured pencil group

black bryony twists

The new local course in botanical coloured pencil which started in October is progressing well. It has a relaxed atmosphere and a step by step approach. The course is suitable for complete beginners as well as those with some experience. Starting with guelder rose berries and following up with hawthorn and holly, this term we are developing a composition or three separate studies. Future subject matter will be wild and garden flowers, leaves, berries, twigs, seeds, bulbs etc. according to season.
We look at choosing and composing subjects, colour matching and blending, a range of techniques, finishing touches and final presentation. It is an opportunity to take time out, leave everything behind and concentrate on creating something from inspiring natural material. Coloured pencil work is known to be very absorbing and therapeutic. It is not as technically challenging as watercolour, but the results can be stunning!
