Synopses & Reviews

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. By breaking complex forms down into basic shapes, this guide to an often intimidating art form provides a foundation for building and developing detail in a painting. 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.

About the Author

Mariella Baldwin is a professional botanical artist whose paintings are held in private collections across the world as well as the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation in Pittsburgh, the Chelsea Physic Garden, and Hampton Court Palace.
