Children's Literature - Lisette Baez
As part of a series of seven books for aspiring artists, Drawing Made Easy Flowers and Botanicals will allow the reader to discover their "inner artist." The series includes thoroughly explained information on drawing animals, flowers, people, landscapes, fantasy images and more. It is geared towards advanced artists, but artists of all ages will enjoy this series. Flowers and Botanicals begins with a detailed introduction about materials and tools needed as well as the anatomy of the flower. The drawing techniques described include creating basic shapes, understanding viewpoints, and sketching basic flower parts including the head, stem and leaves. Shading basics and techniques are thoroughly detailed as well to assist in creating depth, texture, shadows, and shape. The artist can begin to master the drawing of several featured flowers by following the step by step instructions. Choose from a calla lily, freesia, or hibiscus to name a few. Continue your drawing experience by learning to create texture, compose a scene, incorporate ink washes, and draw floral arrangements. The Drawing Made Easy series will be a valuable resource for any aspiring artist. Reviewer: Lisette Baez
