Here is a new way of seeing nature on a journey through the seasons with observation and drawing exercises. Simple observation exercises interwoven with inspiring illustrations invite you 'to see' with a fresh pair of eyes. This opens a door onto a new way of practicing Science as an Art, using the holistic approach of Goethe.
Detailed facts about plants are interwoven with artistic insights. A variety of common plants are beautifully drawn by Axel Ewald, from seed, to bud to flower and fruit. The drawings have helpful suggestions, which encourage readers to try the drawing exercises for themselves.

She teaches, researches and tutors at Schumacher College. Axel Ewald is an artist and teaches sculpture in Israel. New Eyes for Plants has been published in several languages.
