Botanical Illustration with Watercolor Pencils

Create beautiful illustrations with watercolor pencils! Participants learn the techniques of using watercolor pencil, including color observation, color mixing and layering. Watercolor pencil will be combined with colored pencil to create detailed, vibrant drawings. Each week will focus on a different color palette and botanical subject. Instructor supplies flowers. Knowledge of how to use regular colored pencil is critical for success in this class. You will leave the four-week course with frameable art and the skills to create future masterpieces!
