This review is from: How to Draw Plants: The Techniques of Botanical Illustration (Paperback) This book focuses on
technical drawing as the basis of botanical illustration. It brings together an understanding of plant structure with drawing
technique as the keys to success.Selecting, preserving and examining plants is discussed. A variety of plant structures are
shown in detail with the process of building up the drawing.Pencil, ink and scratchboard are the main media covered. The
addition of color is presented in watercolors and acrylics. There are several beautiful color plates, some historical and some by
the author.This is a book best suited to an artist with some experience. The wealth of technical information will provide the artist
with a greater understanding of and proficiency in botanical work.
