Botanical assessment criteria

This is how I have to start assessing my botanical illustration – Anne-Marie Evans style – she just gave us (The Eden Project Florilegium Society) a masterclass

Botanical veracity
Includes structure of plant, correct scale, story of plant…

Technical skill
Includes perspective, colour, tonal value, light and shade, translucency, clarity…

Aesthetic judgement
Includes composition, balance, colour relations …

Includes the ‘wow factor’
