Drawing for botanical illustration – home assessment no.3

  • Tutor: Irina Neacșu - designer and botanical artist, member of RSBA and ASBA (irinaneacsu.com)
  • The course addresses drawing techniques for beginner-level and intermediate students.


Flower study: It is recommended as a model 3-4 flowers of the same species, ideal in different flowering stages. If the studied flower is in the pot, the same flower can be used, seen, in turn from different angles – if the flower is NOT perishable(example: orchids, anthurium).

In this study we learn the construction of a complex volume, step by step. Also, we will study notions of finesse of the composition, how to emphasize a certain point of focus and how to pay attention to the “negative” space of a composition. In this study we meet the first notions of perspective. Finally, we learn how to keep a graphite drawing, under optimal conditions, until a possible framing.
