Photo from my last workshop, Comps and Penstemons, at Siskiyou Field Institute. 2018 workshops will be posted soon at the Siskiyou Field Institute near Selma, Oregon; at the East Bay Regional Parks Botanic Garden, Berkeley, California; at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, Santa Barbara, California; and at SKEA south of Kona, Big Island, Hawaii.
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.
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!
