Capturing The Red Color

Instructor for our Ravishing Reds Course was Constance Sayas - this is one of her class handouts for bright red flowers

Capturing the right red color is an interesting challenge for the illustrator. There should be more orange in the sunlight and more violet in the shadows, perhaps something else at the edges.
Among our elective courses selection we offer from time to time Ravishing Reds course in which the students learn to mix the red hues that are needed to create value and form in red. Please enjoy some student work (in-process) from that class by clicking here.
