Pen and Ink Workshop with Craig Lidgerwood

Face to Face Workshop

Domain House, Dallas Brooks Drive, Melbourne

Pen and Ink has been used in botanical illustration for centuries and is a major component of many scientific illustrations. The use of one tone to build up form using a single colour can be quite convincing when conveying a 3-dimensional form. Pen and ink illustrations are still widely used to identify plant genera, species and morphology and used to clearly aid with plant identification and taxonomy.
