Updated March 28th, 2017: Santa Barbara lecture, show of art, workshops; New blog entry; Lopez lecture.
Santa Barbara in the Spring! (See also Workshops and Shows for other events)
New blog post...thanks for waiting!
Based on her poster session at the Santa Barbara International Orchid Show, Linda is posting three illustrated articles on drawing and painting orchids.
In the first article Linda makes the point that one needs to understand the intricacies of orchid flowers in order to be able to draw and paint them.
The second article is about basic drawing tools as applied to orchids, and the third article is about what is needed in order to paint orchids.
This poster session was designed for those who don't know anything about botanical art. The first article is posted now; watch for the next two.
Lecture and show of art, Lopez Island Garden Club, April 13th, 2017, Woodman Hall, Lopez Island (for members).
Linda gives talk, "Islands of the Salish Sea: Plants and their Habitats" to the Lopez Island Garden Club.
Cards, prints, original watercolors, and hand-painted scarves will be available for viewing and sale, with 35% of proceeds going to the Lopez Island Garden Club.
Look on the workshop page for other lectures, workshops, and shows, with several
in Washington, Oregon, California, and Hawaii.
I will host an Introduction
to Botanical Illustration Workshop on Lopez
Island, WA, or at a location of your choice, if I have enough interest. For more information, email me at email@example.com.
I have posted information
for commissioned botanical illustrations.
This would be of interest to botanists wishing to commission illustrations
and to other illustrators interested in my fees or business procedure.
For teachers: I have posted
a PDF for teachers to use, illustrating different types of inflorescences,
or flowering stalks. And for those learning about botanical art,
I have posted a botanical
art annotated bibliography (first draft).
Happy exploring the wonderful
world of plants & revelling in nature through art!
