"TONE AND TEXTURE"

"Tone and Texture" was the theme, with horses and elephants the inspiration, for my last pencil workshop conducted this past weekend. Seven artists attended, ranging in age from a vibrant teenager to equally bubbly older ladies. The group jelled so well with the common interest of drawing and the creative energy in the studio was quite tangible and made for a fun and productive weekend. They were all keen to develop their skills in drawing and tackled some quite difficult subject matter with determination and diligence. I love to encourage the use of pencil and the versatility of drawing and it is so rewarding to receive grateful and positive feedback in return, it's a win, win situation for us all!
