Beginners Workshop in Pencil & Graphite Pencil

MARGARET HASTIE

This workshop will introduce the fundamentals of botanical drawing and progress to painting in watercolour.  Initially, the focus will be on accuracy and observation in order to train the eye to see what is there, not what the mind thinks is there. We will begin by drawing botanical subjects in graphite pencil, concentrating on the controlled line, shading, tonal contrast and perspective (including foreshortening).After drawing simple plant structures we will gradually build up to more complicated subject matter. Botanical samples will be provided.
