Pencil tools for drawing

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.

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 vorobik@gmail.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!
