Book Description

With Birds and Botanicals, artists of all skill levels can follow the clear, brief instructions and create their own art in black and white and colour, while also practising mindfulness and meditation in their artwork. The art is beautiful and simplistic and the book features a clean, contemporary, and airy design that's sure to appeal to lovers of Japanese inspired art forms, including sumi-e and calligraphy. The essential techniques are covered in the book, as well as instructions for adding colour, forming brushstrokes, sourcing materials, and much more. Step-by-step projects for inking birds, plants, flowers, and more are included.
