Nov. 1, 2018 | Thursday Artist Talk: Wendy Mould, “The Secrets of Graphite”

Have you ever wondered how to create magic with pencil and paper?

Learn from local artist Wendy Mould, who has been making fine art with graphite pencils for more than twenty years and is known for her realistic pet portraits. Graphite is the most immediate and sensitive of the drawing media, perfect for making a quick sketch or a finely worked drawing. Wendy says, “Graphite’s soft, gentle touch on paper can make a baby’s eyes shine and yet it can produce strong, coarse texture that makes you feel the sharp barnacles on a rock.”

During her illustrated talk, Wendy will demonstrate the tools and techniques she uses to bring her wildlife to life, such as the soft feathers of a bird or the fur of a cat. Take home these tips to transform your own drawings!

There will be time for questions and conversation during and following the talk. The event concludes by 9pm. Refreshments are provided. This event is presented by the Surrey Art Gallery Association in partnership with Surrey Art Gallery, and with support from the Arts Council of Surrey.
