Instructor: Carol Schwartz

How do you put on paper the many needles of a sprig of pine? Where do you start when drawing a pinecone? In this 2-hour online workshop, work with the instructor in an online video format both as a group and individually to learn how to decipher these complicated botanical forms into patterns that repeat, making them easier to draw. Add color with colored pencils, practicing your skills with blending and building bold color to create a beautiful winter botanical illustration.
