This is a comprehensive guide to the materials and the basics of botanical art with excellent examples and lovely pictures. It even tells you the right way in which to hold the pencil!

It also has sections by different artists, and provides illustrations of how to draw different flowers, and discusses the parts of flowers.I received this free ebook from Net Galley in return for an honest review.
