Objective: To be able to transfer an image onto film using appropriate reference materials and drawing techniques to create the desired effect

Level: Beginner to advanced

Prerequisites: Colored Pencil I (or equivalent experience)

Focus on the endless range of expression possible with unique colored pencil techniques applied to drafting film. Take your botanical art to new heights by experimenting with additional choices of backgrounds and final presentation options. Use several of Heidi’s original pieces with different looks to inspire your work. You are also encouraged to bring your own reference material, including finished or partially finished colored pencil or watercolor drawings to serve as backgrounds for the semi-translucent drafting film.

The overarching botanical theme may include birds, insects or other items as desired. At the end of the workshop, you will know how to choose reference material, transfer an image onto film, choose drawing techniques for desired effects, finish a piece, and mat and frame it. Botanical Art and Illustration Certificate elective
