An introduction to plant science for artists who wish to draw or paint plants or flowers without sacrificing technical accuracy to aesthetic quality
Many botanical artists struggle when closely observing their subject and do not have the structural knowledge necessary to enhance the quality and precision of their work. This informative book addresses the intricacies of plant and floral structure, form, and behavior, seeking to equip artists with a more comprehensive understanding of botany. It explains basic biological concepts to enhance the understanding of observation, introducing all main groups of plants and fungi; provides a springboard of knowledge to enable the reader to tackle more academic literature; offers observation helpsheets; and encourages a more confident approach to botanical painting and illustration.
Lizabeth Leech trained and worked as a botanist before pursuing art. She regularly lectures on various aspects of botany for artists and exhibits widely.
