The American Society of Botanical Artists is celebrating its 25th Anniversary by offering featuring member artwork in a full-size catalog titled “Celebrating Silver.” The art submitted echoes the silver theme with plants that either have a sliver quality or ’silver’ in the name of the plant. The Northern California Society of Botanical Artists (NCalSBA) is exhibiting 42 images by its members who are featured in the catalog. This exhibition will run concurrently with the ASBA 22nd Annual International Exhibition.

Workshops and Lectures at MAGC

September 26, 6-8 pm

The History of Botanical Art recounts the colorful history of this timeless art form dating back to 1500 BC up to the present. The lecture will focus on several noted artists and their work as well as several important florilegia – collections of botanical paintings depicting the plants growing in a particular garden or collected during a voyage of exploration.

October 4, 10 am – 3 pm

Spend a day playing with a variety of colored pencil techniques and creating the vibrant colors of the changing autumn leaves. We will work on drawing, creating veins and edges, experiment with shine and texture and learn various ways to use under-painting to simplify and enhance our work.

October 5, 10 am – 3 pm

Lucy will introduce students to botanical painting with gouache. She will demonstrate techniques such as layering from dark to light, dry brush for texture, and using gouache to achieve intense color.

October 11, 10 am – 3 pm

Kristin will lead a studio-style class in which she will show examples of her pen & ink botanical drawings, demonstrate her techniques, and provide one-on-one coaching.

November 1, 10 am – 3 pm

Learn the basic techniques for creating a botanical painting. You will spend the first half of the class observing and drawing a specimen with local artist Sally Petru.

November 9, 10 am -12 pm & 1- 3 pm (two sessions)

Children 8 and older (accompanied by an adult) can learn the basics of colored pencil as a medium for drawing botanical art. Choose a specimen from a garden, orchard or harvest and using the tools of a botanical artist, create a beautiful depiction of your specimen!

November 16, 10 am – 3 pm

It is fall. Let’s look at leaves and flowers at the Marin Art and Garden Center. We will focus on seeing details to understand how the world of botany works. Are they big, little, round, pointed, flat, thick, simple, or complicated?

Sat Oct 5th

Painting an Oak Branch and Oak Galls with Gouache

 

Lucy will introduce students to botanical painting with gouache. She will
demonstrate techniques such as layering from dark to light, dry brush for
texture, and using gouache to achieve intense color. These methods help the
artist create a painting that has a sense of depth and density. Lucy will
demonstrate each step in the painting and provide one-on-one guidance as the
participants create their own composition. Students will learn techniques to
allow them to complete the painting on their own.

Lucy will bring some oak branches and oak galls to paint. Students may also
bring their own specimens. We will focus on painting bark and oak galls, but we
may also paint some lichens, if time allows, since these branches will most likely
have lichens growing on them.

A materials list will be provided. We will use both watercolor and gouache.
Students who bring most of their own paint will be able for a fee to purchase the
gouache needed in the class. Students may also purchase all the materials they
will need (paint, paper, and brushes). Some drawing experience is
recommended.

Lucy Martin’s botanical paintings reflect her lifelong connection with nature and
her love of forests. She paints in gouache and watercolor, frequently focusing on
the mysterious beauty of fungi and lichens. She lives in Sonoma County,
California, where she exhibits in local galleries and teaches gouache technique
for botanical art. Her work has been shown often in international shows of the
American Society of Botanical Artists.
