I could talk about this book for hours but I will make it a fairly short review. This book is very definitely the best instructional manual for botanical art using coloured pencils I have ever seen and I have possibly seen them all. If you wish to learn from scratch or improve your techniques you need look no further as this is the one you need! And besides, it is a wonderfully illustrated book just to look at and admire. It has certainly inspired me back to the drawing board.
