THE fine features of flora will be on display at an exhibition from the Bendigo Botanical Illustrators group.

Images of Nature will be on show at View Street’s Dudley House.

Spokesperson Rod Orr said they exhibit biennially rather than on a yearly basis.

“The nature of our work is very precise and time consuming so it does take time to finish pieces,” he said.

“We aim for accuracy, although you can still distinguish the different styles of our artists.”

“The Illustrators are an off-shoot from the Friends of the Botanical Gardens, and have been meeting together now since 2000.

“We meet twice a week at the botanical gardens at White Hills and some of our members have been coming for many years,” Mr Orr said.

“If people are curious about trying out their hand they can come to one of our meetings and see if they enjoy the process.

“We can supply the materials for the initial session.” Water colours on paper are a common medium and many people find the art of botanical illustration meditative and relaxing.

The art works will be for sale at the exhibition, which will run until Sunday, August 26. For information contact Rod Orr on 0439 897 570.
