Details

Gain a deeper insight into the inspiring 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 during this 10-day course.

During this course, 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.
