Publisher Comments:

A beautifully illustrated guide that aims to unravel the perceived mysteries of the art by revealing the steps to making a stunning botanical painting
Botanical painting seeks to convey the essence and beauty of a plant through accurate rendition.

It features a strong emphasis on observation, especially observation through drawing; color exercises and techniques to simplify the painting process; and it covers the main features of flowering plants—the root, the steam, the leaf, the flower, and the fruit.
