Product description

Classic Sketchbook Botanicals is a draw-in book that takes a close look at the details of great floral paintings and shows you new techniques with the help of an expert's suggestions. Printed on quality uncoated stock and suited for drawing and watercolour, each spread will consist of two working parts.

The left-hand page is for study, featuring a close-up for a drawing or painting by a noted artist from the 19th century or earlier. The right-hand page is for drawing, with only a small box for the expert's brief coaching tips, observations, and a demonstrative sketch. While progressing through the book and trying the different artist styles, you'll gain observational confidence and techniques to apply your own drawing and painting.

Classic Sketchbook Botanicals is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring pictures to follow Brilliantly organised book to inspire a budding artist ! My daughter struggles academically and finds a great escape in art in lots of forms but drawing and doodling being a key focus. Often drawn into Hobbycraft for a look round which basically means we come out with something! This book backed up some of the photographs that she has been taking around gardens so inspirational to her ideas. Well done Hobbycraft.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some good features some not so A good feature is most flowers have a line drawing accompanying them. These you can either trace onto another pad or colour in within the book. Another is a list of the colours used are presented. Not so good, not much info in the blending and layering of colours for each flower. But all in all a useful book for anyone starting out in botanical painting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Brilliant Way to Encourage Drawing Thought I'm not the best drawer, I love plants and flowers, so this seemed a good idea for a holiday buy. The book is simply stunning. Created with the idea of encouraging you to observe your subject, select those better colours and then draw what you see, this is a beautiful book for the shelf and one for any artist, no matter what their level.
