Build up a detailed portrait of subjects found in the winter woods. Learn the basic techniques or improve existing skills to illustrate dormant buds, lichen, pine cones, seed pods and tree bark using either coloured pencil or graphite pencil, and use a ‘key’ to aid identification of trees without their summer foliage. This course will suit all levels of ability including those new to both the subject and medium. The only requirement is a desire to work in detail. One-to-one guidance is given throughout. Coloured Pencil or Graphite Pencil only.
