Description

Anyone can draw. In this workshop, Sydney artist and illustrator Carmen Hui will guide you through the different stages of starting an original pet portrait using coloured pencils with a limited colour palette.

We will talk about how to find a composition and layout style that works for you, tricks of the trade, choosing the right colour palette, using the grid as a tool and layering to build depth.

By the end of the workshop each student will be able to take home their very own custom pet portrait and a new found interest in pencil drawing.

The instructor was nice though there was insufficient time to finish the drawing and guidance was minimal.

The session was PERFECT and a lot of very awesome pet portraits were started. Carmen walked us through how to set up and draw the portraits and told us how to overcome common problems (like drawing a pet with white fur/feathers/etc). Carmen also gave advice on what paper and pens to buy in order to continue our work. The session was very inspiring and set us up for success.
