Botanical illustration combines scientific accuracy with artistic interpretation. What better subject  for summer than garden blooms? Start with tips and techniques to accurately capture nature’s varied forms in line with an emphasis on shapes, proportions and perspective. See how to add depth with light on form in shading and cast shadows. Create a pleasing composition that shows off your blooms and tells your viewer something more. Colored pencil has gained popularity in recent years, but it’s not just for ‘coloring’. Learn to mix your own colors in layers and apply them like a painter for luminous depth and bold hues. In just three days, you’ll be ready to create botanical sketch journals and plant portraits of your own.
