If you have ever tried to purchase white paint at the hardware store, you’re well aware that white isn’t just “white”; the same is true in nature. White flowers, berries and fungi can be challenging to portray, because the colors they contain are present in such light values and dulled intensities that it can be tempting to just render them in shades of gray or brown, which can rob your composition of some of its beauty and impact. In this class we will employ several strategies with colored pencil and watercolor pencil (or watercolor) to create whites that are rich with beautiful nuances.  Botanical Art and Illustration Certificate elective
