5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent, detailed and instructive book 6 July 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Small, but perfectly formed. This is a very packed book. Easy to read and follow, ideal for beginners, and thouse perhaps slightly rusty in their technique. Highly recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flowers and botanicals 14 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is excellent.It demonstrates easy to follow methods which could be applicable to drawing subjects other than flowers. Diane Cardaci starts with the basics (blocking in),then working in stages to produce realistic drawings of flowers. she describes several techniques of shading including the use of a "stump" (Carrie Parks also uses this technique) which works well although some English botanical artists do not like using this technique as it may leave too much graphite on the work. However it must be said that her illustrations are delightfull. There are many graded examples to work through which really help. Thoroughly recommended!

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Cheers, thank you, just what I was looking for, a little helper for anyone wanting to draw and colour flowers; more at the beginners level I'd say. Thank you. Recommended.

Very useful - am looking for another similar one to further my studies. The drawings at the end were too complex for me and I need something inbetween..
