Making the Most of Shading and Shadows - with Kate Nolan

Online Workshop

Wednesday 20 April 2022

Thursday 21 April 2022

Virtually everything needs a shadow of some sort- just ask Peter Pan!

In botanical art, shading is an absolute essential skill as it creates the illusion of reality. In this course we will practise and hone our skills in shading on a variety of subjects which are white or pale, smooth and textured.  We will also look at the cast shadow as a device in art and the process of planning and creating such shadows in our own works.

This workshop is designed for intermediate/advanced level artists.

Members’ Price $275.00
