Today I'm announcing the launch of my BRAND NEW WEB PAGE Guide to Online Botanical Art Courses and Tuition
Before today, there was nowhere on the internet that offered a comparative analysis and evaluation of the available online tuition and tutorials for those wanting to learn more about botanical art and illustration - in different art media - but now there is!
Online tuition for botanical art is a growing marketplace because
This page covers:
The online providers of botanical art tuition and courses are split into THREE GROUPS:
It's important to say that all courses - although similar - are also different.
One of the main purposes of my new page is to try and tease out those differences.
There is a Stage Two Development planned for this page where I assess each website and public information provided and cost against a standard set of questions - but that's for 2019. There's a lot of new websites for online tuition planned for a launch in 2019 so better to do it after these have bedded down!
At the present time, I'm still tweaking the context so if you spot any typos and mistakes please give me a shout-out!
Your feedback is very important to me. Many of you helped me build this page - by telling me what you wanted to know about the courses and how they are provided. I've tried to develop the page based on that feedback.
I'd now very much appreciate if it you can help me develop it further by telling me how it can be improved. Let me know what you think.
Today I created a BRAND NEW web page about Pandora Sellars (1936-2017)
I've been meaning to do this for some time and decided the NEW Year was a good time to start.
I say start, because this page (like the one for Rory McEwen) is going to take some time to develop to the level I'd like to get it to. Nevertheless I got a lot done today and I'm very pleased with how it looks on a desktop screen.
Let me know what you think.
Even better - do let me know if you have some information or images to share which are relevant to this page.
I wish you and your botanical art and associated activities all the very best in 2018.

The Best Botanical Art and Illustration Instruction Books is the section on my website which I've devoted to developing a guide to the best instruction / "how to" books available for students and practitioners of botanical art and illustration.
There's an awful lot of books out there.
I hope you'll find my guide useful. Maybe bookmark it for later - or even link to it?
There's more below explaining how this guide to the best instruction books for botanical art and illustration actually works.
A guide to the best "how to" books for creating botanical art and illustration for students of botanical art and and those wishing to develop their knowledge and skills
What does this guide have to offer?
What I've tried to do is:
As a guide I've also included the average ratings out of 5 stars for each book (in the UK and USA). Plus a guide to how to interpret these ratings as they are various factors - detailed in my guide - that influence how many ratings a book has got to date.
Book Review: Botanical Illustration
Author: Valerie Oxley
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - This is an excellent manual for those who like their botanical art to lean towards illustration with a strong botanical slant.
This book differentiates itself by focusing on botany. It's very detailed and practical and consequently very helpful.
It provides lots of detailed facts, useful information, tips and techniques - doubtless derived from the author's many years of teaching botanical illustration and developing a diploma course.
For example, it includes
