RECORDED January 7 & 11, 2024
Instructors: Pam & Sam
Level: All levels
Botanical Subject(s): Colorful grocery store / refrigerator finds
If colorful plants inspire you to learn how to mix any and every shade under the sun, we hope you’ll join our expedition into the fascinating world of color. Dive deep into color theory, color mixing, color blending, and color matching. Bring an assortment of botanical bits in any/every color, and we’ll show you how to match them!
We will be using Faber Castell Polychromos Colored Pencils and Albrecht Durer Watercolor Pencils, but you can apply the concepts to any supplies with which you’d like to participate. We will reference lessons in Wendy’s book, The Joy of Botanical Drawing.
Instructors provide live demonstrations of relevant techniques on the first day of the workshop. The second day of this workshop will begin with constructive critiques of your work, followed by more live demonstrations.
We encourage collaboration and community, and we strive to create a safe environment for everyone to draw together. Don’t be shy! Ask any and all questions you may have; the answers could benefit all participants.
Our workshops include a set of pre-recorded videos for you to watch as you prepare for class, as well as recordings of each workshop session. ALL of the registration and video material for this workshop is delivered to you via email. Please be sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email contacts so that you do not miss important correspondence from us!
Find all of the supplies that we recommend here. Feel free to follow along with any supplies you have (your result may just end up looking a little different). Our lessons are about a combination of fundamental 3D art concepts and colored pencil and watercolor technique, so you can skip the supplies-specific tips and still learn a lot about art basics including perspective, light source, composition, etc. One of the main points we teach is colored pencil and watercolor technique for slow, continuous toning, but as long as you are able to achieve the same blending result with your chosen materials, you can still benefit from our course lessons.
