Capturing Nature’s Color

A Botanical Art Workshop with Asuka Hishiki

A tomato is red and a broccoli is green, right? But what kind of red or green are they? A fully ripe summer tomato can be beautifully red, and your instinct may be to paint it with cadmium red. Actually, the real tomato color consists of a more complicated mixture.

It’s never easy to capture the genuine color of your subject, but a little bit of color logic and calculation will help you achieve more accurate color in your botanical painting. In this class you will explore the world of color theory and learn how to apply it to your painting.
