About the book

This book contains lessons that are developed in a basic step-by-step process that builds in complexity. All demonstrations feature the delicate, exquisitely rendered, botanically accurate work of the author. A thorough immersion in the art of botanical drawing, this book will attract both aspiring and more experienced artists seeking scientific accuracy and the illusion of 3-dimension in their botanical artwork. Based on author Wendy Hollender's classroom demonstrations at the New York Botanical Garden, "Botanical Drawing in Color" is grounded in the basic principles of drawing as they apply to the botanical forms of plants and flowers. Coloured pencil techniques and colour theory are introduced to help artists create 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.
