I'm delighted to be able to bring you photos of the three artists behind the inaugural botanical art exhibition at Easton Walled Gardens in Lincolnshire.
A Year in the Garden appears to be enjoying a lot of success! The exhibition includes 69 drawings and paintings, of which 22 are graphite and the rest watercolour, displayed in a well lit exhibition area.
Sue Vize SBA is a botanical illustrator, tutor and author (of Botanical Drawing Using Graphite and Coloured Pencils). Sue’s passion is to work with graphite and coloured pencil. She has previously exhibited at the 13th International Exhibition of Botanical Art and Illustration at the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation in the USA.
Sue told me
The exhibition is going really well. On the first day of Snowdrop Week the Easton Walled Gardens had almost 700 people through their gates and I must say that it felt as though they were all in the exhibition room at the same time! The Coach House is an amazing venue and it has worked exceptionally well. The hanging space has been split into three so that each artist has their own area with plenty of room for visitors and demonstrating tables. Snowdrop Week finishes on Sunday February 25th but the exhibition and gardens will be open again on March 4th, 7-9th and 10th. The snowdrops are out in force and well worth a visit to see them.
Norma Gregory GM SBA has won an RHS Gold Medal three times. Norma has also exhibited her work both nationally and internationally and works predominantly in watercolour and some graphite.
This is the first botanical art exhibition at Easton Walled Gardens.
Dawn Wright SBA is the resident tutor at Easton Walled Gardens. Dawn’s work has received ’highly commended’ for the Joyce Cuming Award at The Society of Botanical Artists’ Annual Exhibition. She also provides botanical art workshops across the East Midlands.

The Best Botanical Art and Illustration Instruction Books
Graphite for Scientific Illustration by Rogério Lupo is a new FREE guide intended for anyone interested in knowing or practically learning the fundamentals of graphite and who want to improve their knowledge and skills in the use of graphite for scientific illustration generally and botanical illustration in particular.
Basic understandings of observational drawing help the student, but are not indispensable to take the best out of the booklet.
Rogerio Lupo is a Brazilian Natural Science Illustrator who has won first prize in several competitions including the Margaret Flockton Award in 2010 and 2013. He graduated in biology from the Universidade de São Paulo. Much of his work is dedicated to the illustration of scientific botanical articles/papers. He has also researched different approaches to illustration and artistic techniques.
Bobbi Angell - also a leading Botanical Illustrator - kindly provided a technical and linguistic review of the English version translated from Rogerio's first version in Portuguese
The guide covers the following:

There is also an associated video (see below) - however this is in Portuguese - however the demonstrations will still make sense to those who have studied the guide. Plus you get to see Rogerio in action!

This is the list of 33 exhibiting artists from Scotland who have had 56 botanical drawings/paintings of plants native to Scotland selected for 'Flora Scotia' - Scotland's contribution to the Botanical Art Worldwide Exhibition in 2018 - taking place in 25 countries across the world.
The Flora Scotia exhibition is to be held at the John Hope Gateway space at Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh (RBGE) between 31 March and 3 June 2018.
Celebrating the richness of native plants in Scotland and their importance in our lives, this exhibition displays the excellence and variety of styles of botanical artists working in Scotland today.
The exhibition has been organised by The Scottish Botanical Art Collective. This is an umbrella organisation formed to represent the interests of
What's very interesting about this approach is that it has enabled independent botanical artists who are not members of or associated with organisations to submit botanical artwork which has met standards and been selected. Making this a truly open submission! I think it's a huge bonus of this exhibition for Scotland.
