Mission Statement

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.

Drawing a Day

Form Study of Tiny Orchid, graphite on paper, Libby Kyer
Outline is not necessary when studying form. Put your contour on the lightbox, overlay with paper, and create the form study. You'll get a map of all the tonal values needed to start to create form. This abstract can be held handy while coloring your image, to insure form continues to be a critical element of light and drama in your drawing.
