May 2016 is history and Summer is here!

Pulsatilla sp. by Linda Forbess, watercolor

In the beginning of May Christabel King from U.K. visited us and we had the privilege to enjoy her tutoring for 5 days in Hibiscus classroom. The theme of the course was fine details in watercolor and a pasque flower (Pulsatilla sp.) was perfect subject matter for this undertaking. 
Christabel King is a botanist and has been doing illustrations mainly for Kew Gardens and The Curtis’s Botanical Magazine for 40 years.  She has a vast experience in the field as a tutor and illustrator, and will most likely return to Denver in the near future.
