9781849941518: Botanical Sketchbook

Inspirational and instructive, this mix of storytelling and beautiful images charts one woman's journey from amateur painter to botanical artist. Both a showcase for Mary Ann's sketchbooks and paintings, and a record of her achievements, Botanical Sketchbook is packed with advice for aspiring professionals. Along with firsthand accounts of the joys and challenges she faced along the way, it includes work from every assignment she undertook, from her first attempts at drawing a tulip to the triumphant paintings she made for her diploma portfolio. Margaret Stevens, President of the Society of Botanical Artists, adds her insightful comments on each piece.

About the Author:

Review:

"Readers are given a front row seat to Scott's insecurities, decisions, mistakes, and successes. This book's format is unique and provides a level of insight into the SBA diploma program that is not available anywhere else." - ArtPlantaeToday.com

"The critique of each lesson by a mentor provides a learning experience for both the artist and readers." - Chicago Botanic Garden, "Current Books" online journal Gardening and Art

"This book is a perfect complement for the two books previously produced in association with the Society of Botanical artists and is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by me." - Katherine Tyrrell, Making A Mark Reviews
