SUMMARY

Join Amanda for a drawing and painting session, to produce a portrait of a young man in watercolours. She will show you how to begin the drawing process using simple measuring techniques in order to complete an accurate line drawing prior to painting. A variety of washes will then be applied, including the use of cling film for texture in the hair, before the final brush strokes to complete the painting.
