Illustrate the seasons with 12 stunning step-by-step botanical paintingsStarting in Spring, this stunning book follows the rhythm of nature through the year. Each of the four main chapters will focus on a particular season and will contain an overview of plant characteristics for that season, followed by some techniques for portraying those characteristics, and relevant examples of the author’s work. Each chapter will include three step-by-step tutorials: the first for relative beginners; the second for readers of intermediate level and the third for more experienced artists.Readers can choose to work through the book season-by-season, or dip in and out to focus on the plants they know and love. The structure will be easy to follow: it is made up of double-page spreads, each independent of the others so that the reader will be able to follow each spread as an individual session.All the recommended materials used in the book are ethically sourced: the paper is from sustainable sources, the brushes are cruelty-free and the recommended paints are vegan.
