I have not used my color pencils in quite a while and this course covered the basics again and gave me inspiration to go back and play with them again. I use water soluble F/Castell pencils and use them occasionally with my watercolor paints.

Creating is my passion and I'm happy to share it with you!

I believe when it comes to drawing, it's not all about talent, it's about having the motivation to become better. I have learned so much through practice alone. If I can do it, you can do it!

Make sure to follow to stay up to date with all future classes.
