Yellow is notoriously difficult for the botanical artist to portray, without the end result looking ‘dirty’ because of the use of greys for shadows.  With Janie’s help you will explore the possibilities of using anything but grey to produce good shadows on yellow flowers.  You will be shown how to apply a first layer of soluble pencil/watercolour quite quickly to colour the whole subject.  Once dry, oil or wax-based pencils will be used over this to create amazing illustrations and add finesse and detail.  The end result is an illustration as good as any done with pure watercolour or pure pencil – just quite a lot quicker!
