Fall is the season of warm and vibrant colors and unusual patterns on leaves. In this workshop, we will capture the changing colors of the season and various patterns by drawing fall foliage. We will work with color pencils and focus on blending various colors as well as depicting veins on leaves. The workshop will include a presentation of Dorota’s botanical drawings of fall foliage, step-by-step examples, a demonstration of how to approach drawing from observation and various colored pencils techniques, and a time to draw together. Feel free to work in your sketchbook, toned paper, or any surface of your choice. Although drawing in realistic form will be the focus, individual styles will be encouraged and celebrated.
MATERIALS: Gather a few samples of fall foliage or other early fall plants. It is preferred to use live specimens overworking
