A suitable partner skill for gardening is the ability to accurately portray plants in an artistic format. Brodie teaches how to accomplish this using watercolor, gouache, scraperboard, pencil, acrylics and various pen methods. With her botanical background, she explains the technical terms and gives clear instruction on measuring and dissecting plants. Illustrations are used to detail leaf patterns, root structures, fungi, seeds, tree shapes and more. Color photographs throughout.
