Classic Sketchbook: Botanicals is a draw-in book that shows you how by taking a close look at the details of great floral paintings and coaches readers to try the techniques with the help of an expert's suggestions. Printed on quality uncoated stock and suited for drawing and watercolor, each spread will consist of two working parts. The left-hand page features a close-up for a drawing or painting by a noted artist from the 19th century or earlier. The right-hand page is for drawing, with the expert's brief coaching tips, observations, and a demonstrative sketch.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  Elegant, beautiful, medium hard instructions.  The book is not a step by step, how to, but more of a read and learn.  Some people might have a more difficult time learning this way.  For younger artists this is a bit more complex.  This actual art is really pretty and the author is very talented.
