Andrew Tyzack

A beautiful guide for botanical artists, natural historians, wildlife artists, and biologists

Whatever an artist's experience, whether new to the subject or a seasoned entomologist, this book can help
them capture the beauty of insects by helping them understand their structure and appreciate their behavior,
movement, color, and habitat. It offers advice on finding insects to draw and paint, including how to raise one's
own insect models. It also offers a guide to the anatomy and life cycles of the insect. Step-by-step
demonstrations of drawings illustrate perspective, tonal values, and mark-making techniques. Examples of
watercolor and oil paintings are given, representing insects in precise, scientific renditions as well as more
creative interpretations. Other uses of insect illustration are discussed, including printmaking, sculpture, leather,
and glass. The book is superbly illustrated by more than 500 examples and insights from leading artists.


Andrew Tyzack is a beekeeper and is known for his paintings of beekeepers and engravings of bees. He is a
gallery curator and has pieces in the National Portrait Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Theatre Museum in
