    As a beginning botanical artist it presents a comprehensive approach to this area of study with clear guidelines beginning with pencil and tonal studies to watercolour application and composition. For the intermediate and more experienced botanical artist it is a reference for continued growth.

      Comments about Botanical Illustration Course with the Eden Project:

      This book is written by people who actually conduct a year long botanical art course in UK. Just the first browse through the book gave me a greater insight to the art and my own work has already improved.
