THE JOY OF BOTANICAL DRAWING

A Step-by-Step Guide to Drawing and Painting Flowers, Leaves, Fruit, and More

by Hollender, Wendy

THE JOY OF BOTANICAL DRAWING is a gorgeous, easy-to-follow, and inspiring guide to stunningly realistic botanical drawing that covers everything you need to draw our natural world.

Readers can achieve amazingly realistic and vibrant botanical illustrations, from flowers so dazzling you feel as if you might be able to smell them, to tomatoes that look as if they've just been picked from the garden. Wendy Hollender is known for her vivid, detailed, and inspiring illustrations and in THE JOY OF BOTANICAL DRAWING, she helps readers take their art to the next level by sharing her perfected techniques through short lessons that start simple, then build on the basics with easy-to-use and clear step-by-step illustrations.

Using colored pencils and watercolor pencils, Hollender shows readers how to accomplish scientifically accurate botanical portraits of a spiraling pine cone, a spiky chestnut, a fuchsia-tined radish, a graceful morning glory, and many more. From colorful leaves to delicate petals to textured bark and slender stems, THE JOY OF BOTANICAL DRAWING will give readers the skills to complete lifelike drawings while also enjoying nature and the mindfulness of a regular drawing practice.
