Botanical artists Billy Showell's highly accomplished paintings give a contemporary twist to the traditional art of botanical painting, and have received worldwide acclaim. In Billy Showell's Botanical Painting in Watercolour she draws upon her years of experience and expertise to produce an impressive compendium of simply stunning works of art. As an instruction manual, Billy Showell's Botanical Painting in Watercolour covers every aspect of botanical painting, including the materials and tools needed, preserving specimens, drawing, painting, color mixing and composition. Richly illustrated throughout with step-by-step demonstrations and examples of her work, Billy Showell's Botanical Painting in Watercolour is a visual feast as well as an invaluable source of expert guidance and inspiration. With a diverse range of subjects that include flowers, foliage, fruit and vegetables, Billy provides an insight into her painting techniques that artists of all abilities will find both informative and inspirational.
