Vorobik talk on NZ to WNPS.org seattle chapter

Thursday, May 4th. Talk in Seattle to Native Plant Society

Lecture and show of art, "A Yankee Botanists Search for Native New Zealand Bush" Central Chapter of the Washington Native Plant Society. This botanical travelog begins on the North Island of New Zealand, and extends to the southernmost tip of the South Island, with samplings of many different habitats and species of the New Zealand flora. Linda's particular interest is the ferns, and New Zealand doesn't disappoint: from delicate filmy ferns through magnificent tree ferns. Linda compares the New Zealand flora to that of our own west coast and discusses the native vegetation versus non-native, as well as other aspects of this delightful country.

Second part orchid drawing blog post coming soon; check Linda's Vorobik Botanical Art Facebook page for updates

Based on her poster session at the Santa Barbara International Orchid Show, Linda is posting three illustrated articles on drawing and painting orchids.

The first article made the point that one needs to understand the intricacies of orchid flowers in order to be able to draw and paint them.

This 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 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).
