Do you ever wish you could capture the details of a plant long after you’ve seen it? This introductory class teaches you how to make realistic plant drawings using various techniques. Learn to draw a selection of plant parts, including branches, stems, leaves, and flowers, for pleasure or to expand your drawing skills.

Artist Katy Lyness is a passionate home gardener and teaches botanical illustration at the New York Botanical Garden. She has been represented in international exhibitions and is active in the Tri-State Botanical Artist Group. She received her MA in Art Education from Columbia University Teachers College. 

Botanical Drawing – Part Two

In this more advanced class we will review and practice what we learned in Part One: establishing correct proportion, creating tonal gradations, conveying light on form, understanding plant morphology, and understanding color theory.

We also will expand on that knowledge by learning more tools to help with our drawing. For example: One and two point perspective, using a grid to find the correct proportions, and understanding concepts of composition.
