Why read a book to learn how to create art when you can watch and learn from the pros? Now on DVD, this series offers an amazing selection of video workshops that are guaranteed to intrigue and inspire.
Lee Hammond’s Lifelike Drawing in Colored Pencil — In this video workshop, Lee Hammond demonstrates techniques for achieving lifelike drawings in colored pencil no matter what your subject may be, giving you the necessary tools for wonderful, realistic results. After a review of materials, Hammond shows how to perfect layering and burnishing techniques for super, realistic effects. She then demonstrates how to draw a variety of subjects — a vase, a butterfly, a hibiscus flower — building new skills with each, from achieving the smooth transitions of a spherical vase, to the overlapping edges and intense colors of a butterfly’s wings, to the delicate layers and overlaps of flower petals.
