Painting with Pencils – birds


During the course of three videos you will learn how to achieve the best results from a few water-soluble pencils. These are an incredibly versatile medium that can be layered to create lovely effects. You’ll discover how to source inspiration for your painting and Linda will give her ideas for achieving a successful composition. She will discuss the importance of scale when working in a small format.

Next she’ll demonstrate, step by step, how to make the drawing/painting onto watercolour paper and will show exactly how to mount the finished work onto a wooden panel. The final touch is how to seal the paint surface with wax to protect it for display. The beauty of this technique is the finished painting is ready to hang with no frame or glass required.

The course is suitable for beginners and those with some previous art experience who wish to explore the potential of the medium of water-soluble pencils. You’ll learn all the skills needed to create a finished painting mounted on a wooden panel ready for display.
