Illustrating Autumn Leaves with Watercolor

Autumn leaves are where nature meets magic! Learn principles of scientific illustration and techniques with dip pens, ink, and watercolor. I'm teaming up with ArtWaves to share my methods for illustrating autumn leaves with both precision and whimsy.

This class begins with a nature walk to gather specimens to paint, and get inspired by the splendor of Mount Desert Isle's peak foliage. Then, we head to the studio. Students will learn techniques for drawing with dip pens, creating watercolor  effects with materials like salt and soap, and mixing complex colors. Everyone will leave with a watercolor and ink study of autumn leaves on archival paper.

 

All experience levels and ages are welcome! Children under 11 must have a guardian accompany them - please also note that the class will require driving, and participants should plan ahead for transportation. Please contact office@artwavesmdi.org with any questions.
