Product Description

Review

"...this does not compromise or cut corners and it's refreshing in an age when books are increasingly becoming commodities...that there is still someone out there who is prepared...to go the extra mile to produce books for the serious student." Artbookreview.net (4th October 2006) "A good mix of inspiration and education, with gorgeous illustrations, as you might expect." Publishing News (4th August 2006) 'This new and authoritative book is a welcome change of direction... For the artistic plant lover, it's a real treat.' The Artist (April 2006)

Format: Paperback
This is a brilliant guide to capturing plants accurately in drawing and painting. Unlike many other botanical painting books, it is written by someone who is very knowledgeable about the plants she is painting. I have learnt so much more about botany in this book than from any of the other botanical painting books I own (and I own quite a few!). This book contains a lot of scientific information about the plants themselves. A refreshing change...

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By N. Vonkhorporn on 19 July 2009
Format: Paperback
This book is about "knowing your subject before lifting your brush". The first chapter discusses plant kingdoms and plant parts in plain English. The following chapters are about scientific approach to drawing & painting plants of each kingdom. It includes detailed illustration on how to dissect plants, how to scale down and up, how to handle various media and how to present finished works. It is a book for serious botanical artists who want to learn more about botany.

This book is a delight to have and I will be looking at the subject matter and wondering how you can possibly create the illustrations for a long time to come. I am sure this will make a valuable reference for students.

Format: Paperback
I would recommend this book to all people interested in botanical art.As well as numerous lovely colour painting of plants, flowers, leaves and fruit there is also a wealth of botanical information. And a good amount of guidance on making the initial drawing for preparantion for painting. And also chapters on monochrome drawing. It does cover a lot of ground and is presented very well indeed.
