Learn specialist photo-realism graphite pencil techniques for drawing animals in this two day intermediate/advanced level workshop with Bex Gouverneur.

On the first day Bex will introduce you to the materials which you will be using during the course and lead you through a series of small exercises designed to introduce you to creating a range of tones and textures in a realistic style. We will then plan and draft out the image which you will be drawing on the second day using a grid technique to achieve a highly accurate contour drawing.

Day two will consist of independent work on your final drawing with guidance and assistance from Bex on hand throughout the day.

A full step-by-step guide and video footage of the drawing process will be provided for ongoing support at home allowing you to complete your drawing after the course should you not finish in during the workshop.

Reference image TBC.
