During this course you will be exploring the intricate detail within botanical subjects whilst experiencing and comparing different techniques used for dissecting and enlarging features. We will be using some of these to illustrate elements of the plants and flowers in graphite pencil and watercolour within a study page format.
To support our learning and recording of features, we will be using microscopes and further elements of technology such as tablet computers and macro lenses for smartphones (the latter items are not essential materials to buy for the course).
The course will suit those artists who have had an introduction to botanical art and those with more experience. It will also suit botanical artists who like to take a more traditional approach and those who would like to explore a more contemporary portrayal of their subject.
