Sun-Flowers in Colored Pencil

Sun-Flowers in Colored Pencil

August 12, 2023
Draw beautiful summer flowers and explore various colored pencil and botanical illustration techniques. All levels welcome!

Summer is the time for warmth, exuberance, and relaxation. Colored Pencils are a fun, safe, portable, and meditative way to express oneself artistically.

Join me in person at the Point Reyes National Seashore to draw the beautiful flowers of summers- sunflowers, zinnias and other summer flowers, or favorite flowers from your own garden.

We will explore a variety of colored pencil techniques and learn how to blend, burnish and create new colors while incorporating the techniques of botanical drawing. We will focus on color theory, color application, value and form.

All levels welcome.

Nina Antze has a Fine Arts degree and a Certificate in Botanical Illustration from the New York Botanical Gardens. and studied at the Ruskin School of Art in Oxford. She teaches throughout California and on zoom. Her Chinese Maple was recently selected for the deYoung Open. View her botanicals at pcquilt.com
