Masterclass of Botanical Illustration in Watercolor – one day of intensive course.

On the 18th of May, the whole world celebrates the day of botanical art. Therefore we dedicate this special event to a special masterclass, a one day intensive workshop which will unfold in a unique setting at the Botanical Garden in Bucharest.The course proposes a thorough approach on the botanical illustration. It is recommended for those with minimal drawing experience, but it is suitable for participants at all level of training.Each participant will be individually guided. The course allows participant to choose the model of work according to the wished complexity.For optimal guidance, experienced participants can bring up, or send in advance via email, few of the paintings that are relevant for the topic.All the necessary materials are available at the workshop location. However, you are free to bring your own materials if you prefer.Botanical Illustration has a beautiful history that has reached its maximum interest in the 19th century.Originally the botanical study was a necessity in the documentation of the flora specific to the new colonized territories, but also a form of art, one of the few ways for women to approach to the scientific side.In a modern world, in which there is rarely time for such meticulous studies, it would have been said that botanical art is on the verge of extinction that mostly due to the fact that artists are no longer benefiting from the patronage of the royal houses. Contrary to this, botanic artists around the world constantly document old and new plants, working in complex teams with botanists, horticulturists and scientists.Today, the botanical illustration is primarily scientific and then aesthetic, it is still a form of documenting but also a decorative approach to watercolor painting.
