This workshop is ideal for the botanical artist looking for something a little different. Two step-by-step floral projects in coloured pencils and acrylic paint on a black background will be the focus of the two-day workshop. Demonstrations, one-on-one interaction and detailed instructional handouts will guide students through the process from start to finish to complete the two botanical projects. Techniques such as burnishing and layering, along with accurate colour matching, tonal rendering and composition will help students to master this rewarding medium.
Students will learn many skills and techniques in this workshop relating to drawing, composition, colour harmony and colour pencil techniques (particularly in regard to botanical art). The step-by-step projects will also show students how to create stunning three-dimensional drawings on a black background and how they can combine mediums for the best results.
