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.

Day 6 - A Drawing a Day

Drawing On the Masters
One must always draw, draw with the eyes, when one cannot draw with a pencil.
Check out this sketchbook. Toulouse-Lautrec was a master of line. His drawings of moving race horses are the closest thing to photos one can see. Go HERE for a look inside.

Sketches of a mounted duck from varying angles, by Carol Till. Even with just one subject, you can create a drawing that presents multiple views of our subject. Carol made several drawings of several species in the 80" minutes we had of
unfettered access to some great specimens.
How About: Make a contour drawing in ink. Then, use hatch to create tone for form.
