Advanced Watercolor Workshop
SEPIA TECHNIQUES FOR BOTANICAL ILLUSTRATION
Sepia allows for the creation of a detailed painting, focusing on structure and form, without the challenge of color matching. Students will continue to hone watercolor techniques and brush skills using sepia to develop form by observing and painting light and shadow while continuing to build experience in watercolor brush techniques such as wet-on-wet, wet-on-dry, and dry brush. The classes will also emphasize the observation of detail to create a monochrome work depicting the accurate size and structure of a dry specimen of the students’ choosing. Students will be supplied with a subject for the first class. For subsequent classes, they will be asked to bring subject matter (leaves, twigs, seed pods, etc.) for use in observing structural detail and developing finished paintings. This is an advanced level class.
