Fabulous Coloured Pencils with Jan Lawnikanis

Coochie Art Group kicked off the year’s tuition on February2, with a fabulous day of Coloured Pencil artistry with another of our favourite tutors, talented artist, Jan Lawnikanis. Jan took members through the various techniques needed for artist-quality coloured pencil work. We had some members who had not used proper coloured pencils before, but with Jan’s encouragement, we all worked our way through the various techniques and skills required. Jan, like our other tutors, is always very generous with her resources and teaching. It was just great to all be back painting together, in our favourite Hall, looking out over the Bay and the golf course! Great tutor, great mates and great painting together.

More Techniques with Jenny!

We sandpapered and rubbed after transferring our images, to learn the effects of different substrates and mediums. So much to learn and such wonderful and unexpected outcomes, as we uncovered some gems! What an arsenal of different processes we are adding to our painting techniques! And having so much fun, while we learn. Thank you Jenny for another wonderful day and your generous supply of materials! It’s all much appreciated. Looking forward to 5th March for more learning.
