Researching Your Subject: Old Growth Hemlocks
A deep understanding of your subject is crucial to creating exquisite botanical art. Focusing on hemlocks, Patricia Wynne will walk you through best research practices, using world-class resources inside and outside the Garden. You'll make reference sketches and take photos as you walk through the old-growth hemlock forest with a NYBG botanist, take a private tour of the hemlock specimens in NYBG's Herbarium (the second largest in the world!), and visit the American Museum of Natural History to view the hemlock diorama. A final discussion will focus on the various ways research can be employed in your work. Prerequisite: Botanical Drawing I
