The William Morris Acanthus design is one of the most popular and well-known. Taking just a small section, and using coloured pencils, you can create a beautiful and very interesting piece of artwork for your wall. You don’t have to use the same colours as the original design. Use your imagination and turn your panel into something unique and personal. The edges of each leaf can be worked in black ink, or blue, gold or silver – or anything you fancy. Let your imagination run wild and be creative with your work.
See some colourways I have created to give you an idea of what can be done. You can use one of these or make up your own. Your options are endless.
I’m really looking forward to a fun day when no two pieces of art will turn out the same. I will show you how to make the best of your pencils and colour choices.
