The first definitive instructional guide to the art of botanical illustration, published in association with The Society of Botanical Artists and featuring step-by-step work by members of the Society. This beautifully illustrated book covers all aspects -- from plants and flowers to fruit, vegetables and gardens as a whole. Botanical illustration has been a popular art form for many centuries, with its appealing traditions of detail and beauty. Reflecting continued interest in the subject, The Society of Botanical Artists has, for the first time, decided to put together a practical teaching guide to the art. The Society''s membership includes only the most highly-esteemed artists in the field, many of whom regularly teach, and this book reflects that depth of expertise. Packed with demonstrations, step-by-step exercises and stunning illustrations, this is an inspiring, practical guide, as well as a visual treat. Contents include: * Materials * Practical botany * Techniques for drawing, coloured pencils, watercolour painting and gouache * Painting greens & leaf library * Flower library * Composition * Working in the field * Fruit & vegetables * Working with photographs * Flowers in the garden * Botanical illustration * Presentation and framing * Exhibitions -- advice on showing
