The Kew Book of Botanical Illustration 2nd Edition
In this brand new edition, Christabel King, foremost botanical artist at the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew, shares her passion for depicting plants, both in scientific illustrations and in looser botanical art.
This inspiring guide covers everything you need to know: choose a subject and create a vibrant composition; accurately sketch, shade and colour leaves, flowers, cacti and more; finally, press and preserve your own treasured specimens. A chapter on travel drawing gives a flavour of the author's worldwide experience, and there are many of her beautiful plates from the prestigious Curtis's Botanical Magazine. There is a helpful section on suitable subjects for beginners and a glossary of terms, to get you started in the beautiful art of botanical illustration.
