Grisaille Technique in Botanical Painting
A 3-Day Workshop with Wendy Hollender
Join botanical artist, instructor, and author Wendy Hollender to learn the techniques outlined in her book Botanical Drawing in Color: A Basic Guide to Mastering Realistic Form and Naturalistic Color. Students will learn how to use a grisaille technique for undertones in a neutral color and then how to layer color on top to create depth, using watercolor and watercolor pencils in combination with dry colored pencils. This technique is very immediate and materials are simple, allowing the artist to work easily in multiple locations and it is especially useful for work in the field.
On day one, students will become familiar with the techniques and practice on simple forms. On day two and three, a more detailed plant drawing will be completed.
Wendy Hollender began a career in botanical illustration after completing a certificate at the New York Botanical Garden in 1998. Previously a home furnishing textile designer, she started WH Art & Design, using her botanical artwork in various products. Her work was included in the 13th International Exhibition at Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, and in exhibitions at the Royal Botanical Garden, Kew and the Smithsonian National Museum for Natural History. Hollender’s illustrations have been published in The New York Times,Oprah Magazine, Real Simple, and The Sunday Observer (The Guardian).
