So I sat down with my reference photographs, my paper and pencils, Adobe InDesign to use for the layout of the scans, and ground to a sudden halt as I realised animal hair is much too wide a subject for one step by step.
For a start do people want long hair, short hair, curly hair, wiry hair, fine hair, course hair? Then there is black hair, white hair, tabby hair, flecked, tipped, the list goes on. My basic stroke making stays the same but I do use slightly different things depending on both the type and colour of the hair.
So I'm going to break the subject into bite size chunks then people can pick which demonstrations(s) they are interested in.
My aim is eventually to offer a 1 day workshop on either drawing a dog or cat portrait in coloured pencil.
I plan to have them ready for sale at Patchings in June and from my website around the same time.
I also hope to have worked out the details on the workshop by early June.
Watch this space for updates on my progress.
