Leigh Ann is currently writing a book for Crowood Press about botanical illustration.
This 200 page hardback publication will be a useful instructional tool for all botanical artists, not only providing in-depth information about the processes of botanical illustration but also featuring a case study charting the progress of a single painting being created from start to finish for the Nymans Florilegium.
Additionally, the content will include useful chapters such as specific painting techniques, colour theory and dealing with common problems. With over 150 paintings, photographs and diagrams it will showcase examples of Leigh Ann’s work and feature that of some of her students. This major publication is due for release in the second half of 2018.
