/Colorful Leaves: A Coloring Book of Artwork From Nature/
by Gail Selfridge

As a long-time member of the American Society of Botanical Artists I was 
thrilled to receive the 2015 Anne Ophelia Dowden Award to fund the 
publication of /Colorful Leaves: A Coloring Book of Artwork From Nature./

Colorful Leaves is the culmination of years of work in educational 
outreach programs for both children and adults, and it is directed to 
persons who want to create botanical art either for personal use, or as 
part of an educational program, but are unsure of how to get started.

Getting started requires an underlying image and Colorful Leaves meets 
that challenge by combing a selection of reproducible and/or 
transferrable preliminary line drawings with color inspiration from 
leaves found in nature. In addition there is information on how to 
develop scientifically accurate line drawings from materials found in 
your own neighborhood, a practice section with step-by-step 
illustrations matching colors found in nature to colors available in art 
materials, and a listing of all the colors/materials that were used to 
create the examples.

Colorful Leaves is available on Amazon. For those wanting multiple 
copies either for use in an outreach program or for resale, contact Gail
