No explanation of use of pastels or oil or colored pencil (which i am particularly interested in). More color pictures would have made the painting explanations more comprehensible.

This is a fabulous book that is both botany lesson and botanical illustrations lesson. It's a little technical but very exacting in the details of plants so you see all of the parts of the plant down to the hairs along the stems. Being a biology major and having done a course in botany I recognize superbly rendered illustrations and Keith West is top of the class. I would highly recommend this book to any student who wants to improve their drawings (and raise their grade), and to anyone who would love to draw beautiful botanical illustrations.

This book is one of the best drawing books I've encountered, probably the best botanical drawing book out there. It presents pretty no-nonsense process of handling plant specimens and identifying plant parts--including dissections and lighting, placement, and storage. West outlines basic techniques in graphite, ink, scraper board, water-color, gouache, and acrylic. No explanation of use of pastels or oil or colored pencil (which i am particularly interested in). More color pictures would have made the painting explanations more comprehensible. Still, a great book to have in one's botalical illustration arsenal.
