The awe-inspiring beauty of this native South African plant offers a perfect opportunity to explore acrylic as a transparent medium. Although transparent acrylic looks similar to watercolor, the damp-on-damp technique offers a more controlled and slower application process. The result: gorgeous, luminous washes! Step-by-step instruction, demos, and exercises will give you the necessary skills to build smooth washes, variegated patterns, soft textures, intricate details and a final amaryllis illustration. Fee: $250 member, $300 non-member (includes one blooming South African amaryllis or Hippeastrum from South America, depending on supply). Prerequisites: Botanical Illustration in Pencil I, Botanical Illustration in Watercolor I, Light on Form or Certificate in Botanical Art and Illustration.
