Still Life with Colored Pencil
It comes as a surprise to most students that to make a green leaf, green is not the pencil to use! To create beautiful colors in your art, you must first understand the basics of color. Learn how to create colors using three primary colors (red/blue/yellow and magenta/cyan/green) while experimenting matching colors with various botanical subjects. Explore color changes using darks, lights, compliments and analogous colors. Learn tricks for blending colors, burnishing, embossing and lifting colors to create details in botanical illustration.
