The work of Noel Badges Pugh, a scientific illustrator and artist based in San Francisco, California, has a knack for capturing the beauty of flora and fauna. Although he has recently completed an extensive project revolving around bees, it is his depictions of flowers that will win people over. Perhaps because those residing in the Northern Hemisphere can't wait to see blooms in person for themselves.
In this step-by-step section on his website, Noel Badges Pugh shows the process in which he creates his works of art. With the flower he is illustrating on hand and the tool of choice, whether that is a marker or paint brush, it is incredible to see just how realistic his illustrations turn out to be.
