We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Sunday, June 7, 2020.

Instructor: Wendy Hollender

The dramatic interplay of light and dark make roses quite enchanting yet their tightly packed petals can often be challenging to draw. Join Wendy to learn the techniques outlined in her new book ?The Joy of Botanical Drawing? including how to use a grisaille method for creating undertones in a neutral color allowing for three-dimensional accurate drawing and clear structure of plants. Students will explore layering techniques that utilize watercolor pencil washes in combination with dry colored pencils creating a painting that has realistic vibrant color and rich depth. Colored pencils allow for more control in adding details. Embossing tools will be used to add fine lines, pattern details and subtle veining. This method delivers quicker results than traditional watercolor or color pencil techniques, and since the materials used are quite portable, it allows the artist to work in the field or in a variety of settings. FOBG: $248
