FOR BOTANICAL ILLUSTRATION
Students in this course will continue to build on fundamental skills acquired in Intermediate Drawing, Color Mixing, and Intro to Watercolor. Through hands-on experiences, artists increase their understanding of color. These experiences are designed to develop an “educated eye” capable of identifying hues, color temperatures and coordinating values with increased accuracy. Artists are guided step-by-step to complete watercolor studies (both within and outside the classroom) utilizing traditional watercolor techniques crucial to creating depth, form, and the illusion of three-dimensionality. Slow, methodical work is emphasized, as is the need to record and document observations accurately using the scientific method. Artists must demonstrate a thorough understanding of the entire painting process, from the preliminary work to the final product. This is done by visually documenting their planned approach from beginning to end. Pre-requisite: Introduction to Watercolor for Botanical Illustration.
