Spirals in Nature

Discover the beauty of mathematics—the golden ratio, phyllotaxy and the Fibonacci sequence—in botanical subject matter. Leaves, petals, seeds and other plant organs are not arranged randomly; rather, they follow well-defined rules. After learning about and observing these patterns, hands-on instruction provides the tools for illustrating inherent botanical patterns. You will focus on unusual viewpoints, perspective and composition. Start with a skeleton drawing from a live specimen and then flesh it out to generate an accurate final plate. Individual instruction helps you enhance full-value ink techniques that are applicable to future illustrations created in any other media.

Prerequisites: Botanical Illustration in Pen and Ink I.

Fee: $265 member, $315 non-member.
