“When I study and draw from nature, I feel a presence of something that never fails to take my breath away. I “undress” the plant to study the mystery within, exploring plants and flowers on a micro level, almost the way an insect does. Many people desire a deep connection with nature. Join me on this journey where each week we will examine and draw plants, following along with Nature’s life cycle as it develops seasonally. During these challenging times of COVID, I have been creating sketchbook pages on Stonehenge Kraft Paper. I feel they give my work a distinct time and place, setting them apart from my other botanical art. We will study techniques of botanical drawing and the characteristics of working on a mid-tone paper allowing the opportunity to create shadows and highlights easily.”
