Portland Oregon, Botanical Drawing Workshop
Grisaille Technique in Botanical Painting:
Join Wendy Hollender to learn the techniques outlined in her book Botanical Drawing in Color: A Basic Guide to Mastering Realistic Form and Naturalistic Color. Students will learn how to use a grisaille technique for undertones in a neutral color and then how to layer color on top to create depth, using watercolor pencils in combination with dry colored pencils. This technique is very immediate and materials are simple, allowing the artist to work easily in multiple locations, and it is especially useful for work in the field. Students will become familiar with the techniques and practice on simple forms such as fruits using colored pencils. Then they will progress to more complex forms such as flowers.
Location: Portland Garden Club
Additonal art supplies can be purchased here if students would like a comprehensive package of art supplies.
