Details

This 10-day course provides an opportunity to gain a deeper insight into the work of botanical illustrators at Kew and the methods and materials they use.

Precision is the hallmark of the best botanical illustration and a range of relevant techniques will be demonstrated and taught. Accurate drawing is emphasised, as is the art of capturing the true essence and colour of a plant. Techniques include drawing in pencil, pen and ink work and watercolour painting using wash and dry brush techniques.

Individual attention to participants will allow students to work at their own pace and skill level.

Included in the programme is a tutored visit to Kew’s remarkable collections of botanical illustration in the Herbarium and the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art.
