  • Botanical painting course taught by Anne-Marie Evans.

Techniques

Water colour, pencil

Method

Drawing with much detail always had my interest. One of my hobbies was to retouch photo materials, in which accuracy and creativity were most important. Since my introduction to botanical art, I fully focus on drawing and painting flowers and plants. With lots of attention for details and artistic compositions.
