    Botanical drawings have their own technique, that are geared more towards science than individual expression.

      Botanical drawings have their own technique, that are geared more
      towards science than individual expression.
      However, a distinctive 'signature' of an artist is rendered in botanical
      drawings.
      There is a book out called:
      Art Forms in Nature, by Ernst Haeckel
      ISBN 3-7913-1990-6

      He was a biologist, his plates are from 1866 and his renderings of
      marine life, botanicals are just stunning.

      I have done botanicals drawings with children, they actually drift to
      that very naturally, for botanicals accentuate the important parts of a
      plant in detail, something kids seem to want to do..
