I thought id blog a piece of work from a student who is currently studying the botanical illustration course. I felt this was a lovely piece and liked the way the student had varied the tones in the leaves from light to dark. This is a tricky subject and the student has tackled it well.
This is a wonderful collection of studies from a drawing and painting student and I really feel they are excellently drawn and observed. The tonal values are great and the student has used the light to create some very three dimensional and realistic studies. If you are stuck for something to draw, feet and hands are not only accessible at all times..but a great challenge too!
This is a wonderful pen and ink study of flowers and grasses from a student currently studying the painting and drawing diploma course. I thought it would be a good one to add to the blog as students often find using pen and ink quite a challenge. Hopefully this will give students some inspiration and an idea of how to use the medium well.
