I promised to stop myself from opening my blog posts with a comment about how time just flies! ย ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s been a couple of weeks since the Summer Art Buffet, one of the events I was just really grateful to have been invited to teach.

Faber Fully Booked Group PhotoYep, that’s how it looked like after the class with everyone thrilled to see everyone’s works. ๐Ÿ™‚ I wish I could upload the Boomerang file here! ๐Ÿ˜€Albrecht Durer Watercolour PencilsThe Summer Art Buffet is a series of free workshops hosted by Faber-Castell & Fully Booked. ๐Ÿ™‚ It really IS an buffetย where you get to try, explore & play around with the art materials. *I wish they had one of these when I was still a kid.*
Faber Fully Booked Rose IMG_9920Unlike our regular workshops, this session is focused on Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer Watercolour Pencils. ย Also, since a lot of people have been requesting for workshops about flowers, I prepared handouts for this in particular. ๐Ÿ™‚

Albrecht Durer Watercolour Pencils

Yep, you can sketch & color at once: no need for a separate pencil, watercolor or colored pencils if you want your work to have a multi-media finish. ๐Ÿ™‚

Watercolor Floral Workshop Fully Booked Faber-CastellYou may also add lots of water to your watercolour pencils for a more fluid and translucent appearance.
Summer Workshops Philippines Faber-Castell Fully Booked I really enjoyed how we had a wide range of workshop attendees in terms of age and how everyone seemed to have brought their kids / friends / aunt / schoolmates with them. ๐Ÿ˜€

Summer Art Buffet IMG_9871I’m just grateful that the participants have allowed me to share with them a bit of history & samples of watercolor pencils. I did a bit of stalking…err..research on the internet about Albrecht Durer–the Renaissance painter himslef as well as his works. ย I’m always like that with quotes & assignments with historical references. ย I probably enjoy researching & reading up now that I know that I will not be quizzed about this. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hehehe.

Floral Workshop Output

I wish I was able to takeย better pictures of everyone’s works but I hurriedly snapped a photo before everyone had to claim their works! ย So many creative souls this day and I’m really loving how varied everyone’s works are even if they had to work on a few similar references! ๐Ÿ™‚
