Illustrating Pitcher Plants

Ian Loe
Wednesday 23 April – Friday 25 April 2014

It has been said that pitcher plants are perhaps the nearest thing in reality to those figments of imagination 'man-eating plants', but in truth their prey is rarely larger than a cockroach! For the artist, however, their three-dimensional forms and variety of colours and patterns make them an ideal subject for study.

Working from living plants grown by the Garden, we’ll discover how pen, watercolour, pencil, and coloured pencil can be used in portraying these fabulous members of the plant world. Emphasis will be placed on individual tuition and the course will suit both beginners and more advanced students.
10am – 4pm
