Botanical Illustration

I spent the last weekend taking a botanical illustration class from Linda Vorobik at the Berry Botanic Garden. These huge lily pods caught my attention during our garden tour.

We selected plants to draw- with the mantra 'measure, measure, draw' to get an accurate rendering for scientific documentation. We copied the drawings in pen & ink and painted them with watercolor glazes. Now I want to learn more about bontanical science and illustrate more plants.
