Last Saturday I attended the workshop „Drawing plants with coloured pencils“ held by Elke Hanisch. The workshop took place in a very cozy location in Hamburg St.Pauli, which I already knew from Chris Campe’s Lettering workshop last year. She was also the one who invited Elke to give this workshop. I’ve found Elke’s wonderful botanical drawings through Chris Campe’s Instagram account and was enchanted right away. So it was a no-brainer that I booked a spot when a workshop in Hamburg was announced. It has been a while since I’ve done studies of plants and flowers and I was eager to learn more about coloured pencils as a drawing medium.
