Sunday, April 30: 3pm – 7pm EST

Wednesday, May 3: 4pm – 6pm EST

Instructors: Pam & Sam
Level: All levels
Botanical Subject(s): Any hairy, prickly, spiny, or thorny botanical subjects. Some ideas – cacti, stems or leaves with hairs, milkweed pods/seeds, chestnut pods, thistles.


Workshop Description: Fine hairs, small prickles, white spines, and sharp thorns are difficult details to portray. Countless botanical subjects have at least one of these pokey parts that present unique challenges for realistic renderings. We will practice different techniques for drawing these subjects with colored pencil and watercolor, including using masking fluid with a dip pen, embossing tools and wax paper.
