Botanicals by Brush and Pencil

Learn to combine three very different media - black India ink, watercolor, and colored pencil - to create rich, luminous paintings on paper. With Kathie Miranda as your guide, explore the qualities of each medium and discover creative ways of layering ink washes, watercolor and colored pencil together to exploit the inherent benefi ts of each. Create a simple botanical composition with your choice of flowering plant. Add your favorite natural objects such as shells and insects for interesting accents.
