Homer D. House "Wildflowers"
I was looking for a very long time to find a great resource for illustrating flowers. I looked in many book stores and sales to find a book that draws my intention. When I discovered the heavy book of Homer D. House I instantly love it till today!
I love the detailed illustrations and the simplistic compositions in the color plates. The colors are very true to original and the images are inspiring me for my work. Since I am working on a fairy tale book I want to implement more symbols and nature into my work. I think an understanding of nature and an appreciation for nature is essential for an illustrator.
