Botanical Illustration with Colour Pencil

Botanical illustration has been around for hundreds of years and in this fun two-day workshop, we'll get to explore this amazing art form. Working with traditional botanical guidelines, we'll explore through the use of colour pencils in illustrating plants, fruits, and vegetables. We'll work on layout/composition, rendering form, how to choose colours and layering with colour pencils. We'll talk about the process of colour pencil work from types of papers to types of pencils and all the in-betweens. Along the way, we'll delve into how to choose your colours, how and when to blend effectively and the need for working with multiple colours for effective images that pop. I'll pass along key skills and tricks on effective colour use.
