  Thank You for Your Subscription!

Botanical Art Exhibition, Heeyoung Kim & Brushwood Botanical Artists Here we are! The 7th, already! Botanical Art Exhibition: Heeyoung Kim & Brushwood Botanical Artists 2021 was a remarkable year in many ways. Getting to the final phase of the Covid pandemic (hopefully), we have been cultivating various life styles that suit to our routines as artists fairly successfully. Teaching and learning have been well adapted to the changes, so much so some of us don't even want to go back to physically crowded in-person classes any more.  Surely there are irreplaceable merits in in-per ..read more

67. What is the best way to deal with a complicated subject?
Heeyoung Kim Botanical Art Academy
by
2y ago
Study the plant scientifically!  There should be more than one answer to this question, but my own experience convinces me that understanding the plant structures scientifically is the most important beginning of any   botanical art and illustration.  Just improving drawing/painting techniques will only be the partial solution.
