Learn to create nature-inspired drawings and compositions using different art techniques with the help of expert illustrators
Naturalist illustration developed during the time of great explorations as a way to depict all species discovered in the Americas. Contrary to their scientific counterpart, naturalist illustrations were not realistic representations and could reflect the artist's personal vision.
Other than a pencil, ink, and brush, a naturalist artist also carried a magnifying glass to help them investigate, compare, and measure all sorts of details to best capture what they were observing.
To learn to create naturalist illustrations professionally from scratch, we have selected five courses with five different expert teachers who will share all their tips and techniques.
Naturalist Illustrations with Watercolors: Drawing and Composition, a course by Cristina Cilloniz
Watercolor is a versatile medium that requires a lot of attention to detail and brings calm to those who paint with it.
In this course, you will learn to draw and combine animal figures with botanical elements and complete a naturalist illustration in watercolor under the guidance of botanical illustrator and artist Cristina Cilloniz (@cristina_cilloniz).

Hi Kelly@surfacecandy11 . Thanks for the lovely message... I’m really glad you like the image. Unfortunately I’m not able to help at the moment as I’m under contract with a publisher for U.K. work who control my licensing but thank you for asking. Sarah
Beautiful! I love the brilliant colors. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, that’s very kind!@dlynn
