Botanical Portraits With Colored Pencils

Price : from $ 16.99 USD Buy Art
This lavishly illustrated volume offers practical, step-by-step instruction for creating professional-quality colored pencil illustrations of flowers, fruits, foliage, and other botanical subjects.

All aspects of working with colored pencils are covered, including underpainting, layering and burnishing, mixing and building up color, and adding those finishing touches that bring a botanical subject fully to life.

A successfully executed work of botanical art is an exacting blend of scientific accuracy and aesthetic beauty.

Colored pencils serve as an excellent alternative to the traditional practice of rendering botanical art in watercolors because pencils are far easier to use and control, yet can produce equally outstanding results.

The author instructs in the use of both water-soluble and oil-based colored pencils, and presents progressive illustrations that demonstrate the rendering of an artwork from start to completion.

In addition, Botanical Portraits with Colored Pencils shows you how to choose materials and offers guidelines for getting to know each flower or plant before starting an illustration.

The book features over 200 beautiful and instructive color illustrations.

Works by the author as well as other botanical artists show students a wide range of styles.
