Botanical Drawing on Walnut Paper

Walnut Paper Drawing
Walnut Paper Drawing 2

Create a miniature botanical drawing using colored pencils on walnut ink stained paper. This simple technique produces stunning effects making your artwork resemble a botanical illustration from an old manuscript. We will be drawing from observation, so please bring a small rose hip, acorn, maple samsara or a small plant or a seed pod. You will learn simple colored pencil techniques for blending and layering colors and how to achieve form by balancing light and dark tones. All artistic levels are welcome.
