June in the Gardens

I am teaching a monthly workshop in the gardens and there seems to be a strange pattern emerging. I end up totally inspiring myself with the workshop activity and for the next week I do work inspired by that thought! It has happened every time so for the next month's workshop I have decided to try and get ahead of myself and do the inspired stuff BEFORE the workshop so that I can show my students the results.

Robyn Bauer - Ink Drawing Botanic Gardens

The example above is an ink drawing done after I taught a workshop about using black ink in different dilutions. We looked at shape and also texture and how a range of tonal values can help create a three-dimensional effect. I had another plan in mind which was foiled because of the rain.
