Review For The Drawing Artist  Dec 1, 2007
This is an excellent book on how to draw flowers in graphite pencil. The flowers look realistic. The book discusses tools and materials, anatomy of the flower, blocking in basic shapes, changing viewpoints, working with value scales, shading to create form and texture, light & shadow, shading techniques, creating floral arrangements and types of vases. There are drawings of a stem, bud, branch, tree flowers, basic leaf, twisted leaf, long leaves and a thorny stem. Step by step instructions on drawing a calla lily, tulip, hibiscus, freesia, heliconia, ornithogalum, water lily, clematis, hydrangeas, sunflower, and a rose. You will also learn how to draw a scene of a box of flowers on a windowsill. One demo (stylish landscape) shows how to incorporate an ink wash. It also discusses reflective surfaces when drawing vases and dull materials such as wood and unglazed ceramics. Plus there are 2 more step by step demos on drawing still life arrangements with flowers.
