Botanical Drawing in Color || Wendy Hollender

There’s no shortage of books on flower painting and drawing, from loose approximations of form right through to the tight discipline of botanical illustration. What’s offered here tends strongly towards the latter, while not being afraid to consider the pictorial aspects of the work rather than concentrating solely on all the minute details of the subject.

As well as a lot of useful information on techniques, the author also provides an extensive series of demonstrations that go further than we often find, explaining the structure of flowers and plants as well as ways to portray them using coloured pencils.

If you’re serious, but not obsessive about drawing flowers, this is definitely something you should consider.
