Garlic is a very under-estimated subject but one that can offer a lot of challenges. On this three-day course Janie will show you how to draw a complete botanical illustration page, showing the beautiful papery outside skin, the purples and pinks of the cloves when packed together in the bulb, a separate clove to show the shape and a cross-centre dissection to show the inside from a very different angle. You will be given a photograph of the garlic seed head to incorporate into your illustrated page, as they will not be available ‘live’ at this time of the year. Janie took the photographs of her own garlic just before harvesting in 2021. Participants will need to provide two garlic bulbs each.
Not for absolute beginners. Suited to those who are familiar with coloured pencil work and have an ability to draw.
