Tropical seedpods are the inspiration for this workshop.  Ann will be demonstrating her techniques for using coloured pencil or pastel pencils applied with solvent as a base for detailed graphite drawing.  The colour is applied first and then melted into the paper using an alcohol based solvent.  Once dry the surface of the paper is unchanged and provides a good support for detailed drawing either with graphite or with coloured pencil. So the best of both worlds, some colour and lots of detailed and tonal graphite drawing. Throughout this workshop Ann will demonstrate all the techniques she uses in her work and will spend time individually with each student to help you perfect your technique.
