Ten graded lessons to tackle beautiful color in stunning botanical compositions.

This practical introduction to the color and composition in botanical illustration is formed of ten graded lessons, where each teaches you new skills to build upon the last. From red tulips and pink roses to blackberries and green foliage; once you've completed these lessons you will have all the techniques you need in order to tackle far more complex arrangements. An experienced teacher of botanical illustration, Valerie Price shows even the uninitiated illustrator how to produce accurate and beautiful results, with her step-by-step instructions on how to tackle each individual project.
