Botanical illustration: Pen and ink workshop with Pauline Dewar

This workshop will cover the choice and use of suitable pens and paper, techniques for representing various textures and the creation of interest in a monochrome composition. As this is a single day workshop, participants will need to bring a drawing they have already drafted from which to develop their ink version.

Pauline took up botanical illustration as a retirement pursuit and has exhibited in Melbourne and interstate, receiving a Highly Commended Award in the Margaret Flockton Exhibition of Scientific Illustration in 2012-2014 and being accepted as a finalist in the 2014 Waterhouse Art Exhibition. Her work is represented in the State Botanical Collection as well as in private collections.

Presented by the Friends of the Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne.
