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

Study of leaf arrangements on miniature Dendrobium, colored pencil on toned paper, Libby Kyer
Using toned paper allows for quick (10 minutes) exploration of form and light. Actual size of little orchid leaves here is 2" for the center leaf. The leaves are very succulent, so form is extra important.
