A Workbook for Plant Observation and Drawing
By Margaret Colquhoun and Axel Ewald
ISBN 186989085X160 pages; paperback; $30
This book is about a different way of seeing and understanding nature. Detailed, scientific facts are closely interwoven with artistic observation. The authors pose and answer this question: "How do we develop a way of perceiving and thinking that will do justice to life processes?"
A wide variety of common plants are beautifully drawn at every stage of development, from bud and seed to flower and fruit.
The inspiring illustrations are complemented by clear instructions that enable the reader to create finely observed and accurate drawings. This oversized book has numerous black and white illustrations.
