Beautiful artwork is created with value and detail. Working in pencil you’ll develop pigment-free values and master seamless gradations from lightest light to darkest dark without the usual graphite sheen. Concentrate in complicated and elaborate thistle heads and other dried composite seed heads combined with acorns and their intricate caps, and learn to draw the complex detail without losing the overall form. All the skills that you learn in this class can be transferred to any other medium, improving your overall confidence in your artistic skills. Fee: $230 member, $285 non-member. Prerequisites: Botanical Illustration in Pencil I, Light on Form, or Certificate in Botanical Art and Illustration.
