Art Reference Books for Botanical Artists and Illustrators

This list includes art reference books for botanical artists and illustrators. The books on this list include botany for artists, botanical illustration techniques, media selection, color palettes and other reference information for illustrating flowers, fruits, vegetables and non-flowering plants.

Note: The primary focus on this list is detailed botanical illustration using a variety of traditional media. Surreal painting techniques and digital art, particularly 3D modeling and rendering, are not well suited for this list. Thanks.
