Today’s site is a video series that teaches you how to draw plants and unpacks artist techniques for botanical illustration.

When you arrive at the site, I suggest you start by reading the introductory text, downloading the leaf and flower worksheet so you can follow along at home.

Then you’re ready to dive into the video tutorial series. I suggest starting with the first video and working your way through. Already know the basics? Skip ahead to the tutorial that matches your skill set.

On the right side of the page, you’ll find a list of other drawing tutorials that you can work through after completing this one. Some of your options are: How to Draw Mushrooms, How to Draw an Iris, How to Draw Trees, and How to Draw Wildflowers. You’ll also see tutorials for different types of mediums: painting, colored pencils, and pen & ink on mylar.

This is a really cool way to expand your drawing skills. Go check it out for yourself today!
