About this book

A classic text from the turn of the 20th century, by Ernest E. Clark, has been heavily revised and expanded by the former president of the Society of Botanical Artists to produce a stunning handbook of a range of plants. Each plant is illustrated with detailed botanical drawings and a painting, which may come from historic sources, from a contemporary work or feature an interesting medium. Together, it provides a fantastic reference for anyone looking for help in accurate botanical drawing and also in bringing a freshness to their botanical painting.

The plants covered include the anemone, the ash tree, through the homely buttercup, daisy and dandelion, the showy dahlia and gladiolus, the celebratory holly, ivy and mistletoe and the grand oak, rose and lily. Over 60 of our favourite flowers and plants are covered, plus a special section on leaf forms. The text includes clear botanical descriptions to accompany each botanical drawing and also detailed information on the painting techniques and composition for each of the paintings. An absolutely beautiful book that is also a wonderful handbook for all botanical painters who need extra reference with their plant portraits.
