The Art of Botanical & Bird Illustration

Mindy Lighthipe

The Art of Botanical & Bird Illustration is a guide for contemporary artists aspiring to master shape, colour, and texture and render beautiful, realistic, and vibrant botanical artwork! An expert botanical artist educates you about the tools and materials traditionally used in botanical illustration, including pencils, coloured pencils, watercolour, gouache, and pastels.

This thorough yet easily digestible guide includes overviews of key illustration techniques and basic colour theory and mixing and is loaded with exercises designed to help you learn to see shape, value, and form. By learning to understand plant life and anatomy, you can craft elegant flowers, leaves, trees, and much more in no time!

To bring it all together, The Art of Botanical & Bird Illustration includes step-by-step demonstrations to follow along with as you practice taking sketches and transforming them into fully rendered, colourful pieces of fine art.
