I have been doing just a short course on Botanical Illustration at the local adult community education. Although I draw all my designs most of which are botanical and I see my linocuts as botanical linocuts, I have never done any formal training in botanical illustration. So I am doing a short 4 week course….here is my first botanical illustration. It is a Moreton Bay Fig – one of my all time most favourite trees – we have 2 in the reserve nearby our house. I will post some photos of them tomorrow.
