Lara Call Gastinger is the chief illustrator for the published Flora of Virginia, a botanical reference manual containing 1300 of her original illustrations. I love how she manages to create paintings expressing her love for these plants with a high level of detail.⁠

She shared her favorite tools and techniques with us while we explored painting the textures and colors of salad greens.
