Updated October 15th, 2018: Linda's Botany and Botanical Art events through end of 2019
October 20-21: Botanical Watercolor at the Lopez Island Grange
Learn the basics creating
botanical watercolors from professional botanist, botanical illustrator,
and teacher, Dr. Linda Ann Vorobik. Linda, through demonstrations and
lectures, introduces participants to watercolor as used for painting
plants. Linda appreciates that all who come to a workshop have something to offer the group, and her goal is to identify each participant's objectives and to help them toward their goals. As much as she likes to share what she knows and making her workshops "action packed", she loves to have fun. Want to know more? Contact Linda at email@example.com.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
