Drawing and Painting Plants, Paperback


This is a botanically based (as opposed to free-form drawing) practical manual on how to paint a vast range of plants in watercolour and other media.

Drawing on her experience as a botanical art teacher, Christina Brodie takes a holistic approach to botanical art, covering: botanical terminology; drawing and painting techniques in a wide range of media; dissection and examination of plants; fieldwork studies; microscope work and tips on presentation.

Having been taken through the various techniques in clear steps, the reader will be able to draw and paint flowers, fruit, leaves, stems and roots, trees, fungi, ferns and horsetails, seaweeds and other algae, mosses and lichens with remarkable precision and stunning detail.
