P240 - Watercolor Pencil Animal Cracker Journaling

$ 150  


Drawing animals is a delightful way to practice techniques with these pencils. Besides, animal faces can just make you laugh! Watercolor pencils are great for journals and for traveling. Colors become vibrant and yummy when water is applied to the paper surface. The effects range from smooth to textural with effortless brush strokes. We’ll also add some textures with stencils for a great mixed media effect.
Pressing down pure color on paper leads to endless good vibes. We’ll combine watercolor pencils and water-soluble pens while learning clever user -friendly ways to draw. Now you can figure out what to do with those pencils that have been lying around your worktable! My drawing methods will ease those ever so present inhibitions about drawing lines and shapes.
Supplies provided by the Instructor: I will provide photo references, stencils, sponges, battery operated pencil sharper, and other tools to use while we work.
