I also like the way its has been put together; it breaks down, the sometimes very difficult aspects of botanical sketching into doable units. The artist also has a novel way of shading her subjects, you find its not the usual cross-hatching method, which was a nice change for me.
The book would make a great gift for someone, because the artist genuinely imparts good information, instead of just showing off.
The only thing that is lacking in the book, I think, is a discussion about the difference between concave and convex representation of flower forms, its implied, especially in relation to 'turning forms', but not thrashed out, in the sense of trying to achieve a three-dimensional drawing. I think its for this reason that some of the artist's own drawings are a bit confusing? There are some stunning drawings in this volume, all the same.
If you want to start drawing botanical subjects then I highly recommend that you start by buying this book. Happy drawing!

Thought there would be more instructions to show you how to get to the finished article, more for someone with a good deal of knowledge in the first place. Otherwise quite good.Published 10 months ago by Chrisanne
