Building on the work of illustrators of the past, ranging from Elizabeth Blackwell, whose drawings helped to release her husband from debtors' prison, through to the exceptional scientific drawings of Beatrix Potter, this book deals with both the practical art and the related botany of the subject. Starting with an introduction to basic botany; this guide next covers preparation of plant material for drawing and the use of pencils, watercolors, colored pencils, and pen and ink; and finishes with
correcting mistakes and finishing touches and suggested topics for further study.
