Botanical Illustration Course with the Eden Project Book & DVD Set with Rosie Martin
- Product Info
PLEASE NOTE: The hardback book is no longer available from the suppliers so the set is now only available with the paperback version of the book.
Devised by experienced teacher and award winning artist Rosie Martin and Eden Project veteran Meriel Thurstan, this book & DVD set is based on the botanical illustration course taught at the highly acclaimed Eden Project in Cornwall.
Guiding you through basic techniques, such as pencil drawing and mixing colours, the book moves on to more advanced skills, from dissection and bisection to creating detail, texture, pattern, depth and perspective in a wide range of botanical subjects.
The DVD provides a more personal approach with both Rosie and Meriel tackling small exercises and demonstrating techniques, such as basic pencil work, shading, merging colours, creating form and adding detail, before pulling everything together as they reveal how to tackle the larger, more complex projects.
Packed with practical information for illustrators of all abilities and easy-to-follow pencil and watercolour exercises, the course includes stunning portraits of irises, pansies, orchids, and daffodils, as well as more complex forms such as pineapples, artichokes and cacti.
Whether you are an experienced artist or a budding botanical illustrator, it is easy to produce beautiful and impressive plant portraits with this accessible and inspirational guide.
