Rita Horan

For as long as I can remember I have wanted to learn to draw and finally took the plunge with the Coloured Pencil Course. I have never drawn before and found it quite a challenge. 

I started this particular course as I wanted to try and use coloured pencils as a medium and not have my art looking flat. I was a beginner and didn’t understand how to put colours together. 

I have used Fabre Castell pencils which are quite nice to use and am still experimenting with my choice in paper as I don’t feel I have found the right one yet.  

I am very critical if my own work but feel I have managed to produce something half decent and have even had an offer on the giraffe!!  

I want to move on and do the Pet Portraits Diploma Course so hopefully will be returning to the London art College in the near future.
