A Trip to Chile

A Trip to Chile

In order to complete the preparation of the paintings for the book ‘Plants from the Woods and Forests of Chile’, I will be traveling to Southern and Central Chile to paint up to 12 different species. All the paintings so far I did for this publication have been painted from plants growing in UK gardens (mainly at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh in Scotland). I will have two months in Chile to prepare my first sketches for these 12 species, and I will be teaching two separate classes of botanical art students, one of these will be based in southern Chile in the small town of Puerto Varas and the other will be in Santiago at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.
