Illustrating Birds in Coloured Pencil

Janie Pirie
Tuesday 16 October - Thursday 18 October 2018

Drawing and colouring birds is easier than you think, because you don’t have to draw every feather to make them look realistic! On this three-day course coloured pencil artist, Janie Pirie, will show you how to approach illustrating these complex creatures from high quality photographs, and make a drawing that will come to life on your paper. The artists’ challenge is to copy the photograph, but make it look ‘alive’ and three-dimensional by observing light and shade in detail.

Janie will be on hand to share her extensive knowledge, offering group demonstrations and individual tuition throughout the course. For this course a high-quality photograph will be required. We will have a selection available for you choose from, along with wildlife magazines to browse, or you may bring your own photograph if you prefer.

This course is suitable for all levels.
