Student work from Botanical Illustration Class

Over the weekend I taught Botanical Illustration for calligraphers in Red Deer, Canada. Here are photos of some of their work. The class started with black and white drawings and progressed to pen and ink and watercolor. This was the first time most of the students had attempted drawing.

Your students work is awesome, they should be very proud. I love your Africa book and did find the picture that doesn't belong. Sugar cubes.... My son is a collector of sugar. He has attended three exchanges in Europe and comes home with a ton of sugar products each year. He has about 15,000 sugar packets from all over the world and a great deal of sugar cubes, some over fifty years old. What a hobby. Thanks for sharing. Linda R.

As a new journaler, I find drawing the greatest challenge and I'm very impressed with your students' results. You must be a good teacher. I also enjoyed the book on Africa, and the sugar cubes. Now I feel like buying cubes just so that I can decorate them.

Ro, those watercolors dont really look "beginner-ish" at all! Tho I think it would be hard to have your work scrutinized in such microscopic detail(digital images)The Africa book is so cool! Let's go take some of our own photos.... Do the tags come out?
