A thorough immersion in the art of botanical drawing for aspiring and more experienced artists seeking scientific accuracy and the illusion of 3-dimensions in their botanical artwork.
Based on author Wendy Hollender's classroom demonstrations at the New York Botanical Gardens, this book is grounded in the basic principles of drawing and colour theory with the aim of creating realistic forms and naturalistic colours. An emphasis is placed on close observation of plants and their life cycle so that readers can deepen their understanding of the natural world.
