Artist Sarah Hedley hosted the first Drawing Workshop this Tuesday.
We covered the basic drawing skills of line, proportion, angles, shading and tonal values using different types of hand tools. We worked on plad and coloured paper using charcoals and chalk, with warm up exersises to start with.
I would say it was obvious by the end that everyones skills had improved, not to mention we had a talented group of people.
Students professed that it was very helpful and have every intention of attending the next Workshop on the 4th of March.
I personally got to discuss the lifestlyle of a freelancer Illustrator with Sarah to find that the challenges don't get any easier but are always worth while.
