Students will develop their drawing skills, learn how to use watercolours effectively to create work inspired by nature and most importantly, they will be able to successfully complete botanical illustrations and compositions. Each participant will independently work on a set of assignments in the afternoon hours, and work will be assessed on each of the following days.
This course is for beginners but previous experience in watercolour painting is essential. This course explores the following:
- Perspective drawing
- Colour mixes
- Tones and shadows
- Monochromatic studies
- Observation and rendering
- Greens, whites and grays
- Pencil additions
- Botanical illustrations vs botanical paintings
- Leaf studies.
Italian and international students interact in the same classes, making it an ideal venue to share ideas and enhance your overall experience.
