About the Course

Enjoy drawing spring flowers and buds in graphite pencil in this one-day botanical drawing workshop. Wild flowers, grasses, tree leaf buds and witch hazel, as well as flowers such as grape hyacinth and celandine all give ample opportunity to study different forms, shapes and textures. You will be encouraged to use a full range of pencils and will be shown various techniques from clear outlines to sharp hatching and smooth, rich blending.

Basic drawing skills are needed for this workshop, where you will receive all the support you need to achieve a botanically accurate and visually pleasing pencil drawing.

Penny Brown worked as a theatre design and illustrator of over a hundred books before her fascination for the natural world led her to botanical drawing and painting. She is a member of The Society of Botanical Artists and exhibits in the South West, London and abroad and participates regularly in Dorset Art Weeks. She works in graphite, watercolour and cut paper collage, winning the prestigious President's Prize at the SBA 2015 exhibition. She enjoys tutoring and sharing her love of botanical drawing. In 2018 her book 'Botanical Drawing - A Step-by-Step Guide to Drawing Flowers, Vegetables, Fruit and other Plant Life' was published.
