Pen and Ink for Botanical Illustration

Primarily associated with scientific illustration because of its ease for reproduction in books and scientific journals, pen and ink is a valuable tool for the botanical artist.  Instructor Lorraine Brevig helps you build and expand on your previous experiences with drawing and rendering in graphite.  Become familiar with and practice the use of conventional dipping pens such as the crowquill, and experiment with technical pens such as a Rapidograph pen. Practice with a variety of drawing surfaces to create a clean, flowing line, then learn other techniques to create volume and form.  Methods of putting together a “plate” for scientific illustration are discussed as well. Intermediate level.
