Drawing Workshop with Susannah Blaxill @ Mittagong Studio
Mar 8 – Mar 9 all-day

 

In this workshop, fine pencil techniques will be demonstrated and practiced so that students are able to produce fine graphite drawings.

The expressive medium of ink will also be explored in rendering botanical subjects on cold pressed paper with very fine pens, which yields interesting results.

It is also great fun to explore in this way
