Learn how to recreate the stunning tulips painted by Dutch artist Jacob Merrell 1614-1681. Working with colored pencils, you will be guided by botanical artist Carol Ann Morley, step-by-step from sketch to finished tulips. This four-part class will include live instructional time and class critique and will focus on observing the underlying form of colored subjects, beginning with tonal graphite studies; how to select the right colors to create a colored palette and techniques for layering colored pencils to achieve the glowing colors of Dutch tulips. Once registered, attendees will be provided with a photograph of the Dutch tulips along with a materials list.
Carol Ann Morley is an illustrator and dedicated teacher of botanical illustration working in Milton, NH. She founded the Botanical Art Illustration Certificate Program at the New York Botanical Garden and teaches illustration there and at other botanical gardens.
