Bridge the gap between abstract theory and practical knowledge through skillful instruction. You will be introduced to James Gurney’s “Color and Light” and learn to apply its principles to botanical illustration. Learn the theory of color as it applies to creating a realistic image. You get plenty of individual guidance and learn how to work both in the gray scale and color mediums while creating your final piece, a convincingly realistic illustration similar to those in Gurney’s “Color and Light.” A copy of the book, which James Gurney has signed especially for you, is included in the course price. Fee: $255 member, $295 non-member. Prerequisites: Botanical Illustration in Pencil I, Light on Form, Botanical Illustration in Watercolor I or Botanical Illustration in Colored Pencil I.
