Botanical art is a demanding pursuit but it need not be an intimidating one. Christina Brodie draws on her extensive experience as a botanical art teacher in compiling this complete course on drawing and painting plants. From collecting subjects, through preparation, dissection, and micropscope work, to presentation of the finished piece, she combines a thorough knowledge of botany with a mastery of drawing and painting techniques. Clear step-by-step instructions show how to accurately render a wide range of plants and plant parts #8212 from flowers, fruits, and seeds through leaves, stems, bark, and roots to fungi, ferns, mosses, and seaweeds. Christina Brodie's concise text and beautiful, detailed examples illustrate techniques for various media, including pencil, ink, watercolor, goache, acrylics, and scraper board. This highly practical manual offers a complete course of instruction in basic and advanced techniques of botanical illustration, and is suitable for beginning artists and journal keepers as well as teachers and professional illustrators.
