‘There are a lot of books on flower painting, all of which claim to offer a different approach, but The Botanical Palette is one of the most original I’ve seen in a long time.’ Artists’ Choice Book Club
‘Filled with practical advice on how to achieve the correct result by the use of translucent washes that retain the delicacy of the subject. All this is backed up with 17 step-by-step demonstrations by members of the SBA, making this a collaborative effort that speaks with quiet authority.’ The Artist Magazine
‘In addition to providing invaluable guidance on the subject, the material contained in this excellent book serves as a source of constant inspiration and utter delight.’ This England
The Society of Botanical Artists was founded in 1985 to bring together artists of repute in this field. Members include winners of prestigious awards, including the Royal Horticultural Society’s Gold and Silver Gilt medals, and their work is held in collections worldwide. Margaret Stevens, who wrote and co-ordinated this book, is the Society’s President. As well as teaching the subject, she has previously published a practical guide to the art and the very successful The Art of Botanical Painting, also published by Collins.
