Colour Wheels and Portraits

Last week we had another two workshops with New Zealand artist, Graham Braddock. To see our bushmen's huts we did last year, click here.

This year we had two workshops: Confidence with Colour & Fun with Portraits.

In the Confidence with Colour workshop Graham had us draw a colour wheel with a difference - a vase of flowers. Then we added a marrow to demonstrate how to blend different colours together to different effects.

In the Fun with Portraits workshop, Graham picked a boy & a girl from the audience and led us through drawing a portrait of them. We focussed on getting proportions right before filling in the details.
