Instructor: Linda Medved Lufkin
Do you want a bridge between your drawings and paintings? In this three-day botanical art workshop, you will be introduced to water-soluble graphite by creating soft gradations and fine details in graphite with a paintbrush. Bring a subject that has interesting structure, shape, value or texture, such as dried seed heads, milkweed pods, rose hips, gourds, dried flower heads etc. and learn the advantages and limitations that this medium has and how you could incorporate it into your future botanical pieces.
