Art Master Class with Beverly Allen

9:30am to 4:00pm Tuesday 30 April 2019 (Daily event)

A four day contemporary botanic art class with multi-award-winning artist Beverly Allen

Working with one plant subject, this class will build your skills by the demonstration of techniques from initial washes to dry brush detail and finishing, and through individual instruction. The emphasis will be on close observation, accurate drawing, the many subtleties of colour and use of light to create a three dimensional painting. Suitable for intermediate to advanced students, or those with drawing skills and experience in other media.

Beverly has shown annually at the Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney ‘Botanica’ Exhibition since 1999, and exhibits internationally. Her work is held in private collections including the Shirley Sherwood Collection and the Isaac and Alisa Sutton Collection, as well as at the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation USA, the Royal Botanic Gardens Herbarium Library at Kew Gardens, the Royal Horticultural Society Lindley Library, the Highgrove Florilegium for the Prince of Wales’ Charitable Trust and the Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust Sydney.

She was awarded a Gold Medal at the Royal Horticultural Society’s exhibition in 2007 and in 2010 was awarded the inaugural Gold Medal for Botanical Art by the New York Botanic Gardens.
