Introduction to Botanical Drawing with Coloured Pencil

July 25, 2020 - August 22, 2020



The instructor is professional artist Jeannette Sirois


Students will have online access to the instructor for feedback, discussion and questions.  In addition, students will have access to 4 exclusive online bonus videos that will delve deeper into advanced botanical techniques and methods.  Each video will be available following the weekly session.


Botanical illustration has been around for hundreds of years and in this fun workshop we’ll get to explore this amazing art form.  Working with traditional botanical guidelines, we’ll explore through the use of colour pencils in illustrating plants, fruits and vegetables.  We’ll work on layout/composition, rendering form, how to choose colours and layering with colour pencils.  We’ll talk about the process of colour pencil work from types of papers to types of pencils and all the in-betweens.  Along the way we’ll delve into how to choose your colours, how and when to blend effectively and the need for working with multiple colours for effective images that pop.  I’ll pass along key skills and tricks on effective colour use.
