Intro to Botanical Art, Tropical Style! Intro to Botanical Art, Tropical Style! 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.
