Botanical Illustration with Linda: Her philosophy

There are many challenges for those who teach workshops: engaging with participants of many different experiences and abilities, making learning fun, satisfying all customers. 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 vorobik@gmail.com.

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).
