Drawing Realistic Portraits Workshop
Oct 16-17, 2010








I have had several requests to teach my graphite pencil techniques so I have decided to offer a workshop, I am so excited! The workshop will be held at the Outlet in Port Coquitlam (Leigh Square). The class size will be limited so if you are interested please contact me sooner than later to ensure a spot for yourself.

This two day workshop will help you to bring your drawings to a whole new level of realism and depth. The first day we will combine short demos followed by hands on applications of each technique. The second day we will apply these techniques create a completed portrait from your reference photo.
Some of the skills you will learn are:
  • how to choose great reference photos
  • an easy way to create accurate line drawings right from the start
  • realistic shading and textural techniques
  • an in depth overview of the materials used to make the process successful for any subject matter

Whether you are a portrait, landscape or still life artist your drawing skills will reach a new level of realism by the end of the workshop. A full supply list will be provided after registration.
Oct 16 & 17, 2010
Sat & Sun 10-4pm
$156.00
Again, if you are interested in this workshop, please don't wait until the last minute to put your name on the list :)
