Brilliant! Begins at the beginning of rendering three-dimensional objects convincingly. Presents a sequence of hands-on color theory exercises that are highly useful no matter what your expertise or experience. You become intimately familiar with your tool, colored pencil, before advancing to analyzing and drawing structural features of flowering plants, then drawing from life.
