Learn the basics
for creating botanical illustrations from professional botanist, botanical
illustrator, and teacher, Dr. Linda Ann Vorobik. Linda, through demonstrations
and lectures, introduces participants to drawing skills, parts of the
plant, what botanical illustration is when defined precisely, and watercolor
techniques as used for painting plant portraits. The first morning of
the workshop begins with introductions and demonstrations followed by
supervised drawing to create pencil drafts for watercolors; later in
the morning pen & ink supplies are described and techniques are
demonstrated. The afternoon consists of lecture/demonstrations on watercolor
supplies and techniques followed by drawing and painting time. The second
morning will begin with more demonstrations followed by supervised drawing
and painting. The workshop closes with a friendly critique of works
produced. All skill levels are welcome: accomplished artists can increase
their knowledge of botany and skilled botanists learn drawing and painting
