Flowers have been drawn and painted throughout history, from Egyptian tomb paintings to the ornate botanical art of the 18th and 19th centuries. For today's artist they are a challenging and rewarding subject and their delicate colours and forms are well suited to the drawing media. The initial chapters concentrate on the importance of observing and understanding the shapes and structures of plants and how they are effected by perspective. Further chapters cover composition and using sketchbook, and explore suitable drawing media such as pastel, ink, pencil and mixed media, the text is accompanied by finished drawing and step-by-step demonstrations. Here is an invaluable book, full of practical advice on how to improve your technique. It clearly explains the principle behind drawing flowers and also suggests ways in which the artist can expand and develop their skills.
