As a follow-up to the successful RHS Flowers: A Watercolour Art Pad, this edition includes 15 beautiful plant and flower templates to fill in, plus some introductory step-by-step guidance and tutorials on painting botanical subjects

Creating beautiful botanical paintings has never been easier with these template outlines and art-quality watercolour paper. Perfect for absolute beginners in botanical art, the ready-to-use outlines allow you to focus on the painting and avoid the accuracy of composition drawings. Each outline includes a finished painting by artist Rachel Padder-Smith and a recommended color palette, so all you have to worry about is enjoying the process!

Included are step-by-step tutorials on all the essential tips and techniques you need to know, from painting different parts of the flower and shiny surfaces to perfecting the fine veins on leaves, as well as advice on how to correctly capture light.

Rachel's stunning illustrations also include fruit and vegetables, so whether you're a lover of autumn leaves, spring daffodils, or even an onion or two, she has you covered. This detailed and visual art book is the perfect start for anyone looking to take up botanical art, refresh their skills, or simply appreciate the beauty of nature.
Rachel Pedder-Smith is a botanical artist who trained at the Royal College of Art, London. She is best known for her ground-breaking and exquisite 18-foot Herbarium Specimen Painting, displayed at Kew Gardens. She also moderates the Botanical Illustration Diploma at Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh and has been awarded four RHS gold medals.

Her paintings are included in many notable collections, including the Shirley Sherwood Collection, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation and the Lindley Library. Rachel's paintings have been adapted by Liberty London for fabric designs and one of these, named 'Floral Eve', was used by Vivien Westwood for a dress in her Summer 2013 collection.
