Take a deep breath, get out your favorite pen and ease into the tranquil process of tracing these gorgeous and modern botanical illustrations. Renowned artist Anna Oszvald brings you 40 breathtaking drawing projects designed for you to trace over and bring to life right in the pages of this book, thanks to the sturdy high quality art paper. As you draw over Anna’s lines, you’ll get comfortable with the motion and rhythm of sketching while seamlessly creating delicate florals, lush greenery and other wonders of the natural world one stroke at a time.

Here’s how each project works: The left-hand side of the page has tutorials that teach you how to capture all those minor details, like the graceful folds of a daisy’s petal or dense complexity of a passionflower’s center. The right-hand side has the illustration in full waiting for you to breathe life into it with your newfound skill. And thanks to the relaxing medium of tracing, there’s no pressure! Simply follow the lines and get lost in the natural beauty as you unwind from the stresses of the day. You can even take these drawings one step further and color them in with marker, watercolor paints or any medium you like. In addition to these 40 projects, you’ll find 10 bonus tear-out pages to hang on your wall, give as a gift or frame and keep forever. Take a stroll through Anna’s beautiful garden as you hone your drawing skills with each calming stroke of your pen.
