Botanical Drawing Tip for Preservation
I just started doing botanical drawings. Wendy Hollender's Workbook Botanical Drawing A Beginners Guide has been a great help to me. While trying to figure out a way to preserve a plant and also see it from top to bottom (root to top of plant) while drawing it. I cut a hole in a piece of cardboard and placed it over a tall glass of water. I put the plant root through the hole and into the water. This sample has been alive and well for over a week.
