Capturing the right red is an interesting challenge for the illustrator. During this three-day workshop, we create rich reds using different pigments to make the subjects come alive on the paper. We explore reds, maroons and purples found in nature, seasonal flowers, orchids and juicy fruits. Build on your watercolor skills as you learn to mix the red hues you need and effectively apply color to create value and form. Instructor demonstrations, practical exercises and individual guidance with a variety of red botanical material prepare you to complete a finished plate of a red-blossomed specimen.
