Take your pen and ink skills to a new level of sophistication. Explore the Gardens’ limitless world of color, textures and complex botany, and incorporate this information into your black and white illustrations. Working with both technical pen and quill, learn advanced techniques to make strokes mimic the fuzz on a fern, the down of a milkweed pod, the mottled colors of a variegated begonia. Learn how to layer and manipulate lines and stipples to develop a full range of value, texture and atmospheric perspective. Pen techniques take on new meaning as you flesh out a final inked illustration from a plant of your choice.
