Join artist Sarah Simblet on an inspirational journey of discovery as she makes drawings of every type of plant. From the tiniest mosses to exotic flowers and majestic trees, this book shows how understanding botany will give your portraits of plants vibrancy and life. In Botany for the Artist, Sarah Simblet takes you on a personal tour of the kingdom of plants, encouraging you to observe them more closely and draw them more accurately.

Complemented by beautiful photographs, Sarah's drawings reveal the structure of roots, stems, leaves, flowers, and fruits as she explains how plants breathe, feed, and produce fruits. If you have ever wondered how photosynthesis works, why leaves change colour in the autumn, or how seeds know when to grow, Botany for the Artist has all the answers.

Step-by-step drawing classes and detailed pages from Sarah's sketchbooks guide you through all the techniques that you need to draw plants successfully. Masterclasses by famous artists - from Renaissance masters to contemporary illustrators - showcase different approaches to botanical illustration over the centuries. Botany for the Artist is a visual feast, not just for anyone wishing to master drawing plants, but for gardeners, photographers, and everyone who is passionate about plants and how they are portrayed in art.
