A-Z of Botanical Flowers
In WatercolourBook - 2012
A complete guide to botanical illustration--from dissection to framing work--this traditional teaching workbook is penned by Michael Lakin, a keen gardener and an experienced and enthusiastic tutor whose teaching methods follow simple, step-by-step, six-stage techniques. Stressing the importance of the sketching process, artists are shown how to develop accomplished pictures from initial beginnings and observations right through to the drawing and final painting stages. With an entire alphabet of flower examples accompanying sketches, this work provides clear descriptions of the colors and techniques used, allowing beginners and more advanced artists alike to find inspiration and a deeper understanding of how floral scenes are composed.
