Tips, techniques and inspirations to portray plants
The plant kingdom has always inspired artists to reproduce its wonderful and lavish inventory of shapes, textures, and colours. Spanning from scientifically accurate illustrations to more bold and original interpretations, Arte botanica collects 90 gorgeous botanical artworks by contemporary artists from all over the world, inviting readers to test themselves and try portraying flora in all its diverse and colourful manifestations.
Through a practical and intuitive approach, artist and teacher Helen Birch accompanies each image with some information on the style, techniques and tools used to create it, as well as valuable advice regarding planning, composition and colour. A visual index and an artist index help readers find their own way through this non-conventional guide: in fact, each sheet is independent and readers can select their personal reading path depending on their own preferences and tastes. Plunge into this book if you are looking for advice, or quickly browse the pages to get inspired and find out the best tips to portray plants, fruits and flowers.
