Ann's Portrait Workshop in England

Ann's bringing her workshop to England - July 2017 - Hosted by the UKCPS

Ann's info-packed 2-day workshop will bring your portrait techniques to a whole new level. In fact, we guarantee the workshop will exceed your expectations on every level or your money back. Ann has fun in her workshops so expect lots of laughs and giggles, but she is also very dedicated to teaching you everything she knows and helping you in every way to master her portrait techniques.

In Just 2 Days You Will:

• Learn how to create soft, glowing skin tones

• Gain confidence in capturing a likeness - and how to fix it if you've goofed

• Master how to "whisper" and "scream" with your colored pencils

• Draw realistic, expressive eyes with loads of depth

• Learn to layer all kinds of color without worrying about getting "mud"

• Understand how to simplify without losing realism

Why Learn from Ann?

Besides having written the best-selling colored pencil portrait book, Ann is a pro! Being able to draw portraits is one thing, but breaking technique down into small enough steps to effectively teach it is another thing altogether. Over two decades, Ann has matched her passion for drawing with her passion for teaching and has honed her portrait workshop down to a portrait-artist-making machine.

What is your goal?

Struggle with capturing a likeness? Ann will show you how to improve.
Skin tones rough or patchy? Ann can diagnose why in a matter of seconds.
Eyes look flat or lifeless? Ann has dozens of "secrets" to help bring eyes alive.
Dead looking skin? Ann will show you how to make them glow.

With clear step-by-step exercises and constant mini-demos, you'll see exactly how Ann achieves life-like portraits and how you can, too. Even if portraits aren't your thing, Ann's depth of knowledge of color, layering, edges, negative space and more will leave you with new found pencil power! Both novices and practiced artists will learn how to dramatically improve their skills. (Only basic drawing skills are required as Ann provides a portrait reference photo and a basic line drawing to transfer.)
