You should learn to draw if you find that your paintings are often disappointing or frustrating. If you are a talented painter, but don’t know how to use more help tones to create form and accurately observe them, you may be wasting time as well as your talent.
What’s the best way to start with botanical art?
My guide will show you how to create beautiful floral paintings. What to draw. The best way to improve your drawing skills is by using botanical artwork.
The botanical arts are my favorite. My floral prints and classes were sold before I began teaching or holding workshops on botanical art.
It is vital to be able to accurately draw botanicals. This is an art that I enjoy and find fascinating. The origins of botanical art are scientific illustrations, which aim to transmit knowledge. The botanist, who was an expert in the field of photography before, used to take pictures that captured all the wonders and complexity of the natural world.
Both drawing and paint are based on the same principles. The only difference is the tool that you choose – a paintbrush or drawing pencil.
As with walking and jogging, painting and drawing come together naturally. After you learned how to walk, you could run. Learn to draw first, and then progress onto painting. Once you’ve mastered painting, try moving onto an impressionistic or abstract style.
I believe that all painters need to be capable of drawing accurately and efficiently if required. It’s quite another thing if they can. It’s my opinion but I am curious to find out if there is any famous artist that cannot draw.
