    The Anatomy of  Flowers: After Arthur Harry Church

    The revolutionary drawings of Arthur Harry Church (1865-1937) are considered some of the finest botanical illustrations of the twentieth century. Church's particular skill was in developing techniques for examination of flowers and plants in ways which revealed all their inner structures while leaving all the parts with crisp sharp edges in his illustrations of cross-sections and diagrams.
    He was also meticulous in the way he painted and developed techniques which allowed him to maintain precision in his illustrations as well as his dissections.
    This workshop will cover techniques on how to draw and paint flowers in the style of Arthur Harry Church. You will learn about plant morphology and the variation flowering parts.

    Learn how to transfer a simple botanical drawing onto watercolour paper using perforating techniques.
    Day 1 will be dedicated to drawing a chosen subject; leaf, flower or plant – simple line drawing work is preferred for this technique. The design will then be transferred onto good quality watercolour paper. Some ready-to-go examples will be provided for experimentation.
    Day 2 will be dedicated to the perforation techniques of your design. The white on white perforated design creates a subtle and delicate etch-like pattern and a mesmerising effect, when held to the light.
