Contribution with works for "The flora" and
"Drawing from model" by author Helen Birch

The Italian version of "The flora";"Arte botanica", honor my work with this beautiful cover.

Helen Birch's book,  "The flora" (Pyramyd editions), Is composed of a selection of botanical works by international artists. Published in many languages, it joins the series of books by the same author. She writes and analyzes the various techniques that serve art. I am very grateful to Helen for giving me the honor of being a part of this project, by publishing many of my botanically inspired paintings and sketches.

In "Drawing from model" (Pyramyd editions). Helen again published a double page spread from my Moleskine notebook, this time a composition with human figures. This book is also published in many other languages; like "Drawing from life" (Rotovision), and "Dibujo del natural" (Gustavo Gil)...
