A Place to Start in Botanical Art


Here’s what you will find in this booklet:

  • The basic setup and materials you need to get started
  • The importance of deeper observation of plants in order to see Nature’s details in a way you have not seen it before.
  • An overview of the main principles of drawing that you need to explore to enhance your drawing skills
  • An opportunity to explore the first principles of drawing in a basic exercise.

Here’s what I hope to encourage with this booklet:

  • An understanding that sketching and drawing can be fun and that it is the foundation for competence in this art form.
  • A love of connecting with plants in a special way.
  • Inspiration to continue drawing as often as you are able to.
  • An awareness that if you keep drawing you WILL improve.
