A luminous look at flourishes for Spring.
Heather Victoria Held, Instructor
Each Spring, the earth begins to awaken and bloom. We are presented with vibrant florals, chirping birds and pollinators in the garden. Using our pointed pen for delicate etching techniques and offhand flourishes we will bring these sweet designs to life. Taking a visual cue from growth that happens in the sleeping earth, we will experiment on dark paper backgrounds and a subtle grisaille technique that can be layered with coloured pencils.
You can further enhance details with watercolours and metallic inks or gouache as you bring your designs to life. Simple birds, bees and butterflies can be added to your blossoming designs. The class assumes some knowledge of the pointed pen and will advance your flourishing and pen drawing skills. Let’s welcome Spring together in this joyful class.
