Award-winning botanical illustrator Siriol Sherlock shares her skills and secrets for creating luminous, realistic portraits of flowers and plants. Her techniques are simple, yet they yield remarkably impressive results. A stunning array of illustrations, of both finished works and key stages of the painting, appears throughout, illuminating the instructions. All the various materials are covered, as well as traditional and experimental techniques. Examine the details that go into depicting foliage and fruit, flowers in context, single stems, multistem arrangements, and even the leaves, stems, and branches so important to giving a plant character. The flowers bursting forth in beauty on the page range from bright and tropical blossoms to red roses and a brilliant poppy.
