February 6th - Susan Brisco - Coming together of Art and Science - Macro to Micro world of plants
Sue started her lecture by telling us that she had two aspects to her work - traditional and contemporary
She undertook a 3 year Diploma in Botanical Art with the Society of Botanical Artists. She made sketches of pieces out in the field and then made detailed compositions back in the studio. She was marked on scientific accuracy and colour by tutors who are both botanists and artists. Susan told us that this had made her gain great confidence in using watercolour.
