Giovanni Civardi has built a formidable reputation worldwide for his skills as both an artist and a teacher, and here he provides a unique introduction to the art of still-life drawing focusing on natural forms.

At the start of the book there is a useful section on the various drawing materials that are available, where to find botanical subjects and how to make careful studies and observation.
The author's in-depth knowledge of the subject is apparent throughout, making this book an ideal introduction for the beginner, as well as a source of information and inspiration for artists of all abilities.
