The Art of Inspiration in Botanical Watercolor

by Tica Sydnor

Botanical painting requires us to see and experience the gifts of life in nature.  Learning to paint depends on one thing: passion . passion for the brilliant colors and intricate patterns of plants ,flowers and pollinators, captured in herbarium pages ,photos and live specimens.The focus of my book is to enhance your creativity and then practice practice on your drawings and paintings.

"Art is not just a beautiful object hung on the wall, but the painstaking labor of someone who wished to give an accurate reflection of their world for years to come. The beauty comes from not only the technique of the work but how valuable it is to see the history through the lens of someone who lived it.”
