About

The Group, Ventnor Botanical Artists, was formed in 2002 by Deania Reid, RHS Silver Medallist for her botanical work, and the original membership was from students who had attended her classes on the Island.

We have a membership of seventeen and we meet once a month at Ventnor Botanic Garden, Isle of Wight, for discussion and help with work in progress; there is no formal tuition at these meetings.

Botanical painting differs from 'flower painting' in that the whole character of a plant is recorded.Careful observation of growth habit is vital and preliminary sketches are important in order to 'understand' the plant. Attention must be given to composition and form and therefore accuracy of drawing and colouring is essential.
