CEIL 202 SU01: Illustrating Nature

Jun 23
Aug 11

This course introduces you to the principles of creating accurate drawings from nature. Focusing on form and structure, you will observe natural elements including birds, insects and other fauna. Through close observation, you will learn to translate proportion and depth into two-dimensional representations. Line, tone and value will be explored through work in pen, pencil and ink. Emphasis will be on adherence to detail, literal representation, and measured accuracy towards precise communication through illustration.
