“That’s Coloured Pencil?”

Discover the amazing effects of coloured pencil!

Meet artist Alison Philpott who’ll introduce you to the increasingly popular medium of coloured pencil, an alternative to paint and brushes. In her talk, “That’s Coloured Pencil?” she will walk you through the process from inspiration to framing your piece and show you samples of her work, along with other artists’ styles.

Whether your art is abstract or realist or somewhere in between, coloured pencil lends itself to highly detailed pieces.

Philpott says, “The same principles of composition and balance used in painting and drawing are used in coloured pencil work, but laying down the colour is quite different.” She will share how to achieve the effects that you want and discuss different pencil brands, surfaces, and tools to help you get there.
