This class takes pen and ink skills to a new level of sophistication. Students will explore the Gardens’ limitless world of color, texture and complex botany to incorporate this information into black and white illustrations. Working with both technical pen and traditional quill, students will learn advanced techniques to make strokes mimic the fuzz on a fern, the down in a milkweed pod or the mottled colors of a variegated begonia. Layering and line manipulation, along with stipples will also be covered. Pen techniques take on new meaning as final inked illustrations of a plant are fleshed out. Fee: $225 member, $280 non-member. Prerequisites: Pencil I, Pen and Ink I, Perfecting Perspective, Light on Form, Botany for the Botanical Illustrator.
