  • Drawing the Face in Colour Pencil
     September 24, 2022 - September 25, 2022
     9:30 am - 4:30 pm

This is a new workshop from Manuela Pilz which will introduce the colour pencil as a unique way to study features of the face. Colour pencil is a fun and beautiful medium for drawing. It has a soft texture and when using just one colour it creates whimsical and modern interpretations of your subject.

On the first day, we will spend time doing some simple exercises to help us show the different tones and forms on some of the most important features of the face. When everyone is ready, Manuela will introduce the class to the essential tools that will enable you to draw up the head from the side and from straight on, considering proportions through continuous demonstrations and guidance.

Good quality reference images will be supplied. Time will be given to explaining the process of choosing a good reference image for a tonal drawing to help you choose reference images in the future.
