curtis's botanical magazine.

curtis's botanical magazine is an illustrated publication which is renowned for featuring the work of two centuries worth of botanical illustrators in detailed but accessible description, started in 1787. some of the use of colour is amazing, and the vibrancy of shades is something that i'm trying to achieve at the moment, without losing the depth of line. the only drawings of carnivorous plants that i've managed to find have been disappointing, just because the use of colour has been very subtle, and slightly washed out.
