Pen & Ink and Watercolor

The 18th century was imbued with botany fervor and with it, a great demand for botanical publications. Since full color printing was still a half-century away, the application of color was mostly achieved by hand painting engraved or lithographic prints. The work was laborious but the results were beautiful.


In the tradition of the old botanical plates, create a modern botanical composition combining ink and watercolor. The focus is on winter fruit and vegetables!


Starting with a visual history of botanical artists and their botanical prints, see how ink and watercolor complement each other to define structures, values and details; how, when used together, each medium can be applied with less complexity. Using historic prints as a launching point, have fun selecting and arranging your choice of winter produce to create thumbnail compositions.


Marjorie leads you in hands-on exercises as you practice inking techniques with the various pen and ink tools. Review wet and dry watercolor application and create subject-based color mixing charts. Choose between 2 methods to combine the 2 mediums.

Step-by step demos, plenty of in-class work time and one-on-one and group critiques guide you to produce an historically rich, botanical ink and watercolor piece of art!
