Botanic Illustration

Botanical art encompasses a range of styles and may take the form of scientific illustration or realistic drawing and painting of botanical subjects. Botanical artists seek to understand the structure of plants and to communicate this knowledge to their audience in an aesthetically pleasing manner.

 

The fundamental factor in scientific quality of a botanical illustration is not the medium the artist chooses to use or the  technology used for its representation, but the artist’s understanding of plant morphology
