You can also read the transcript for the video. If you select the three dots below the video - on the extreme right - and select "open transcript" - the transcript opens up in the top right of the screen and you can read what is being said continuously without referencing the screen.

In due course, with Rogério's permission, I aim to summarise the key tips from his Guidebook and video so that I can add these into my page on Scientific Botanical Illustration to accompany those from Walter Hood Fitch, the eminent botanical draughtsman. Fitch wrote eight articles for The Gardeners' Chronicle in 1869 as a guide for botanical drawing!
