Gain a deeper insight into the inspiring world of botanical drawing and learn the methods used by a professional.

Botanical drawing requires a level of observation and drawing skill to capture the true essence and form of a plant.

Join botanical artist Lucy Smith to deepen your knowledge of plant structure and 'how to see' using measured drawing and perspective.  

On this course, you will draw a complex subject, learning to depict the leaves and flowers through three dimensions, as well as draw and render the solid forms of fruits and seeds.  

This course is suitable for artists with some prior experience of botanical drawing.
