Lovely Wren

with J Elizabeth Gyles Johnson

 

This sweet little wren was drawn with Derwent Soft Drawing Pencils.  If you have worked with regular colored pencils, this will be a very different experience for you.  These pencils are very soft and blend very easily.  They come in lovely gentle colors that lend themselves beautifully to nature subjects.    Elizabeth will walk you through this project step by step.

Students at all levels will be able to accomplish this project.


This workshop opens on August 4, 2013 and will remain open through October 6, 2013
