Today I completed the final lesson of the
Derwent Art Academy course.
This time it required the use Oil Pastels and Sgraffito technique to produce a painting.
Size A5 (6″x8″)
I really enjoyed doing this and will definitely use the technique as part of a Mixed Media painting in the future.
Today I completed lesson 5 of the
Derwent Art Academy course, it covered watercolour mixing and using the wet-in-wet technique.
The end result was to produce a painting of trees.
I’m not very happy with my painting really, I tried to work in the style of the artist and I found that really difficult. On the bright side though, it was accepted and I am now looking forward to the final lesson!
Today I completed lesson 4 of the
Derwent Art Academy course, it covered colour, tone and blending colour pencils.
I haven’t really done much colour pencil work before and I really enjoyed using them. There were 2 subjects to choose from. The first was a Cockerel and the second was a Blue Tit.
I opted to do the Blue Tit and I will be attempting the Cockerel in the near future.
A5 (8″ x 6″)
I decided to sign up to the online
Derwent Art Academy course, once you complete the 6 classes and graduate you receive a certificate from the Academy and a tin of Derwent pencils!
I am really enjoying it, I’ve only completed 3 classes so far, they are great fun to do. When you submit each of your drawings you receive an email and then the next lesson is unlocked.
I have posted my submissions under the Practice Pieces tab, why don’t you sign up and have a go yourself!
