38. Botany for the Artist: An Inspirational Guide to Drawing Plants by Sarah Simblet
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The book is part botanical reference, part art book, part how to. I confess I didn't read it in its entirety because I was short on library time and the botany information is dense. But if that's your interest, this is a lovely resource to have on it.
The book is full of illustrations of plants: flowers, fruits, roots, trees, leaves, seed pods... and also peppered with botanical photographs as well.
Interspersed with all of the information and art are drawing/painting lessons on particular plants. She works mainly in pencil, ink, and watercolor.
The book is worth looking through just for all of the illustrations.
