The Rocky Mountain Society of Botanical Artists is an open and diverse group of artists, collectors and admirers who share a love for the practice and perpetuation of botanical art and illustration with a fond focus on plants in the Rocky Mountain Region.
We encourage and participate in educational outreach, juried and non-juried exhibits, lectures, workshops and regular chapter meetings. The RMSBA is proud to be the very first chapter affiliation of the international organization, the American Society of Botanical Artists.
Complex forms and subjects can sometimes be more easily managed by careful observation of negative space - the area in-between objects. Check out Mike Sibley's discussion of negative space as he leads you on an adventure to draw grasses. Make sure to have paper and pencil handy to work along with his tutorial.
