Coquille board is a paper that has a textured surface resembling finely wrinkled paint or silk crepe material. The tiny ridges and depressions in the paper surface assist the illustrator with quick stipple-like texture and continuous tone application; it’s sometimes referred to as “stipple board.” When applying a variety of media on coquille board, a stipple pattern appears, making work quick and effective. It is not only perfect for black-and-white or continuous tone reproduction, there are also time-saving techniques for applying a variety of black media to coquille board. By using pen, ink, black wax pencils and white gouache you will explore the characteristics of line, form and texture on the board surface. Demonstrations and individual guidance will help you select a suitable subject matter and complete the final project during the course. Fee: $230 member, $285 non-member. Prerequisites: Botanical Illustration in Pencil I, Light on Form, Botanical Illustration in Pen and Ink I.
