Botanical illustration aims to accurately capture the details of a particular plant species, both as a scientific record but also as a piece of art. 

You will choose an autumn fruit to study, dissect and illustrate.  You will cover accurate measuring, drawing, dissection of the fruit, illustration of the individual components of your species, composition on the page and colour inking the final design.  You will also look at how to express detail and texture using pen and ink.

By the end of the workshop, you will have learned how to capture a comprehensive representation of your chosen autumn fruit and will have a beautiful line illustration to take home.

All materials included.
