From the creators of The Art of Botanical Painting, here is the essential guide to achieving perfect color in your paintings

The Botanical Palette, published in association with the Society of Botanical Artists, is the first instructional guide to focus entirely on the art of color in botanical painting. Each chapter in the book looks at a specific color, providing expert advice on how to achieve the right color in both painting and colored pencil work. The detailed step-by-step demonstrations reveal exactly how each flower painting is built up, from the initial stages to the finished illustration.

>The Botanical Palette also includes special project features in several of the demonstrations. Each project offers a simplified drawing of the finished work that students can trace and use as the basis for their own painting. By using this basic model, they will be able to focus more closely on achieving accurate color portrayal.

In addition to beautiful botanical paintings throughout, a superb gallery of paintings by members of the Society completes the book and provides additional inspiration. Featured artists include: Valerie Baines, Susan Christopher-Coulson, Brigette Daniel, Paul Fennell, Susan Hillier, Jennifer Jenkins, Barbara McGirr, Vicky Mappin, Susan Martin, Kay Rees-Davies, Margaret Stevens, Ann Swan, Sandra Wall Armitage, Brenda Watts, and Janet Wood.
