Book Description

Failsafe lessons for drawing floral and botanical elements For journaling, for stationary, for keeps

The Kew Book of Drawing Flowers is a step-by-step guide to drawing flowers by botanical illustrator Bianca Giarola.

As a self-taught artist, this book collects everything Bianca wished she knew when she first started drawing flowers, encouraging readers to practise directly on their preferred medium (sketchbook, paper, and so on).

From the most basic to the more intricate blooms, each project increases in difficulty and teaches a new fundamental technique, making it perfect for beginners wanting to gain a complete understanding of how to draw flowers. Readers will be able to use what they’ve learned right away in their own art projects, be it home prints, journals and stationery.
