The authors of the bestsellingBotanical Illustration Course with the Eden Projectare back with new sources of inspiration for professionals and amateurs interested in creating scientifically accurate illustrations of flowers and plants. This time they focus on solving two difficult challenges: depicting texture in pencil or paint, and painting subjects with unusual colorsfrom black flowers and plants (such as seaweed) to species that feature eye-catching greens, blues, or pink. There's also a captivating exploration of new ideas in the field, including combining botanical art with traditional Japanese flower arranging. Stunning illustrations appear throughout, many shown step-by-step just as they were created, plus practical advice on commercial opportunities for botanical artists.
