Beauty is in the details. Fuzzy, thorny, rough, smooth; it’s all form on a small scale. Learn to see texture in a new way that allows the student to create realistic textures using a variety of colored pencil techniques specific to Mylar film, including pencil application and layering techniques; how to make the back of the surface enhance the front; and how to erase colored pencil from Mylar. Through guided exercise and practice, the class will assemble a collection of texture technique studies that can be referenced for all future work. Fee: $95 member, $105 non-member. Prerequisites: Pencil I, Color Layering for Colored Pencils, Light on Form, Colored Pencil I, Colored Pencil II or Certificate in Botanical Illustration.
