Graphite Pencil Drawing for the Advanced Beginner
What you’ll learn
Recreate a photo of a dog using graphite pencil.
Learn and use measuring techniques for scaling up in size and ensuring drawing accuracy.
Create animal textures and values with graphite pencils.
In this course, you will learn how to accurately draw from a simple reference photo using a range of graphite pencils, and I hope you will have fun doing it. It’s meant to be lighthearted, but also with focus on precision in order to furnish you with a new set of tools for your toolbox
You will be carefully supported and guided through the entire process, from discussing which materials you will need and how to select them, to set-up, then onto accurate measuring in order to replicate and realistically scale the image up. From there we will walk through how to add value including shading and mark-making, in a way that allows for the entire image to be built up simultaneously, resulting in a cohesive, rich and beautifully finished drawing. When we are finished, you will walk away with a new set of skills you can use to create more beautiful drawings.
My hope is that you find the process and outcome as enriching as I do, and that it both ignites and feeds a spark of creativity for you. Enjoy and be merry!
