3 Day Botanical Drawing Workshop at Hollengold Farm


3 Day Botanical Drawing Workshop at Hollengold Farm


Dates:  Sept 9 - 11  Friday thru Sunday

Join botanical artist, instructor and author Wendy Hollender at her home and garden to study the techniques outlined in her book: Botanical Drawing in Color, A Basic Guide to Mastering Realistic Form and Naturalistic Color. Create drawings in colored pencil and watercolor pencil from the plants growing in the fields at Hollengold Farm. Learn to use a “Grisaille” technique for undertones in a neutral color and layer color on top to create realistic plant portraits. This technique is very immediate and materials are simple, allowing the artist to work easily in multiple locations, and is especially useful for work in the field.
