Coloured Pencil Botanic Art with Sarah Kelsey

Coloured pencil is a versatile medium that is ideal for creating detailed botanical illustrations. This workshop is designed as an introduction to coloured pencil for those with an interest in botanical art.
During the workshop we will explore:
• different approaches and techniques with coloured pencil;
• drawing surfaces and other materials;
• blending techniques to produce a smooth finish;
• creating a three-dimensional effect.
Students will develop a study page of a botanical subject in preparation for a final, colour drawing. Delivery of the workshop material will be through discussion and demonstrations, as well as personal guidance for each
Sarah Kelsy studied science with a particular interest in Australian native flora.  She began studying botanical art in 1999 and it has now become a passion.
