The Art Shop Ultimate Botanical Starter Kit
We have assembled a selection of kits for coloured pencil botanical illustration. We were inpressed with the very informative and inspiring book 'Botanical Painting with Coloured pencils' by the illustrator Ann Swan, an essential for beginners.
'An invaluable book for all botanical artists wanting to try this medium'- Society of Botanical Illustrators.
The canvas roll makes your kit very portable.
Faber Castell Polychromos Coloured Pencils are very good quality, oil based pencils with 3.8mm leads that hold their point well and are essential for fine detailed work. Available in 120 colours, they are pigment rich in colour and are very blendable. It is a good idea to buy your pencils loose rather than in a tin of 12 or 18, and we have made the selection for you. As you progress, you will want to add to to your palette.
12 coloured greys are included- 6 greys (cold blues) and 6 greys (warm reds).
