Botany for the Artist

By Sarah Simblet

From the tiniest mosses to exotic flowers and majestic trees, this book shows how understanding botany will give your portraits of plants vibrancy and life. In Botany for the Artist, Sarah Simblet takes you on a personal tour of the kingdom of plants, encouraging you to observe them more closely and draw them more accurately. Complemented by beautiful photographs, Sarah's drawings reveal the structure of roots, stems, leaves, flowers, and fruits as she explains how plants breathe, feed, and produce fruits. If you have ever wondered how photosynthesis works, why leaves change color in the autumn, or how seeds know when to grow, Botany for the Artist has all the answers.
