how to draw plants

Elizabeth Olwen

I recently did a workshop at Second Home, my coworking space in Lisbon. The space is filled to the brim with plants which is one of my favourite things about working there, so we thought it would be fun to use the plants as the inspiration for the workshop, titled How to Draw Plants! I had fun teaching the class, always so exciting to see the light in people’s eyes when they are doing something creative and enjoying (and surprising) themselves. I also had fun whipping up a little handout for everyone to take home with them, so I thought it would be fun to share here as a download for you to use if you’re not sure where to start when it comes to drawing plants, or just want someone to hold your hand through the process a bit. These are things I think about when I draw plants! If you’d like the full PDF, you can download it here. And a few peeks at the workspace/inspiration, below :)
