Blooming Gorgeous! Lucy Rose illustrates The Hidden Histories of Flowers for Hardie Grant



Lucy Rose has been commissioned by Hardie Grant to illustrate their latest Hidden Histories book. This iteration, The Hidden Histories of Flowers, has allowed Lucy to employ her rich, textured style to highlight the depth and vibrancy of flora past and present.



“I created the illustrations firstly by researching all the flowers in real detail. I then spend time sketching each flower by hand, working out the compositions which was important in this project as I had to find a way to incorporate multiple plants into one image, focusing on how they interact with each other. Once the sketches were right, I work out my rough colour scheme, draw them on my iPad and add lots of organic textures and then fine tune the colours.”
