Learn to love your sketchbook
Sketchbooks are an important archive for botanical artists and the place where we practice our observations and drawings; testing colours and storing collected images.
It’s time to organise yourselves for a productive autumn.
PAINTS: check they are in good order and that they are light fast and single pigment colours
BRUSHES: Be ruthless!
and discard any without good points for painting. Old brushes are useful for alternative techniques
PENCILS: check you have the right leads and pencils for sketching, drafting and drawing
PAPER: check you have clean sheets cut ready, or pads/blocks with enough paper that can be used. If dirty or rough you will struggle
TRACING PAPER: check you have ample supplies as you can never have enough sheets
OTHER EQUIPMENT: DIVIDERS are ESSENTIAL; clean erasers and new putty rubbers; clean rags and/or kitchen towel; clean palettes
