Combining the talents of two renowned artists, Margaret Eggleton and Denis John-Naylor, this is a detailed, comprehensive guide to drawing trees and flowers.

There are detailed studies of leaves, branches and petals, and 19 wonderful step-by-step projects, each culminating in a beautiful drawing you'll be proud of. Suitable for beginners wanting to build up their confidence as well as more seasoned artists seeking inspiration, this book is a must-have for anyone who wants to draw trees and flowers in a variety of media.
