About the Artist:
I am Smitha Rao(@art_by_smitha), an IT professional turned artist currently based in Bangalore. Although drawing was my childhood passion, I took it seriously only since 2018. I had moved to United Kingdom at that time and got a chance to explore a new medium- Coloured Pencils. I instantly fell in love with it, mainly because of the amount of realism one could achieve using it. I love drawing still life and bringing them to life on paper. My drawings are highly detailed, colourful and hyper realistic.
Here's what you'll learn at this Masterclass:
- Understanding the medium: Types of Coloured Pencils, Paper
- How to hold the Pencil, pressure control, mark making, strokes
- Layering and Burnishing with Pencils to create depth
- Dos and Dont's
- Will do some blending exercises (creating colour gradients)
- Understanding the importance of light and shadow in realism. We will shade a sphere with the above knowledge
- Tips and techniques to keep in mind to get realistic results (choosing the right reference, noticing details, picking the appropriate colours etc)
- We will start with a realistic food (colorful dessert) drawing and practically apply all the basic concepts learn.
We will continue with the drawing that we started on Day 1 and by the end of the session we will have completed a realistic dessert drawing.
Basic Module is a Prerequisite for Intermediate Module.
- If you have already attended one of the previous workshops, you can directly register only for the Intermediate Module unless you want to repeat the Basic Module.

- Creating different textures with Colored Pencils (Hatching, cross hatching, contour hatching etc)
- Simple texture exercises (water droplet, tree bark, fur, feather)
- Before jumping into the bird drawing, we will do some simple practice exercises to understand different types of feathers( Kingfisher Feather, Parrot Feather etc.)
Day 2 & Day 3:
