Palmengarten botanical art exhibition – Wednesday last week

A good class this morning and progression with the brochure for the Norwegian botanical art holiday.

I have heard from Sue Henon that we have two further red dots on pictures. I am so glad that botanical art is being so warmly appreciated in Frankfurt. It would be lovely if we could awaken a similar interest in Norway.

Some more pictures. This time they are three pictures by Norma Gregory. I first met Norma when I first exhibited with the RHS. She won another Gold Medal with her fantastic paintings of roots. Amongst others was a Rhubarb plant which I will never forget. The RHS added that picture to their Lindley collection.

But now you are possibly ready for a couple of pictures in a different style coloured pencil than those shown yesterday. These two pictures are by Sue Henon and are on coloured paper.

    1. The pictures that you saw on the blog were from a workshop of three days. During that time they learn as much as they can and usually complete their paintings afterwards. Some send me photos of their finished work and some bring them along the next time they are signed up for a workshop. However, I have seen a huge development with each of those students over the last months.

  1. Hello Gaynor! Enjoyed your blog posts as usual! I liked seeing the hyacinth by Sue Henon, I’m contemplating that for my ‘botanical illustration’ SBA assignment, really interesting compositions! I hope you’re well, and hope to see you soon, perhaps at another exhibition. I hope to exhibit in the SFP Oxmarket Exhibition this year… Best wishes, Helen.

    1. Hei Helen, your work is magnificent. Are you back to your main studies again, with this in between? I have often thought about the decision you made, particularly when I have seen any of your work. I too liked Sue Henon’s Hyacinths. They really struck a cord with me and I think that they will make a good subject for your botanical illustration assignment. Good luck. I’m glad you will be exhibiting at the Oxmarket and hopefully I will get to see you there. Best wishes,
      Gaynor
