In Tangle-inspired Botanicals, author and artist Sharla Hicks guides you in exploring and developing your own style of botanical, landscapes, lush foliage, and mixed-media color enhancers.
It's not hard to see why drawing tangles continues to grow years after tangles first hit the scene. These types of drawings are easy to pick up, and can be drawn on just about anything. With a focus on simple mark making as well as drawing with the intention to relax and be creative, tangle drawing is a powerful tool for people looking to tap into their inner artist.
Tangle-Inspired Botanicals guides you in exploring and developing your own personal style of tangle-inspired botanicals, land and seascapes, leafy foliage, and mixed-media color enhancers. Artist Sharla Hicks uses nature photographs and monoprints embossed with flowers, leaves, and grasses for her inspiration.
Tangle-Inspired Botanicals includes more than 200 illustrations, including many finished artworks, along with written instruction.
