About This Class

If you like botanical illustrations but don’t know how to start drawing this way or want to improve your skills, this class is for you!

I tried a lot of different techniques during my learning. And now I want to share with you the best of them. You'll learn some tips and tricks I use in my illustrations that you can incorporate into your workflow.

In this class you'll learn:

  • Different types of petal shapes
  • How to analyze flowers
  • How to add details and shadows
  • How to draw real flowers and grass
  • Techniques you can apply to any botanical illustration! 

You’ll be creating:

  • Flowers with me and your own using the techniques from this class

If you think that you can’t draw at all, I’ll show you that this is nonsense.
