Flowers, teeming with brilliant colors, subtle shadings and an inexhaustible variety of shapes and textures have traditionally been a favorite subject for artists. Watercolor is the perfect medium to capture their radiance and purity of color.
We have assembled this book from some of the best teaching available on painting flowers with watercolor. We’ve started at the very beginning with the basic supplies you’ll need and information on color. There’s a large section of twenty-five step-by-step demonstrations and a section of invaluable information about flower shapes and textures. We’ve also included tips on painting interesting elements such as dewdrops.
The next time a field of wildflowers takes your breath away or the elegance of a single rosebud leaves you speechless, grab this book, along with your palette and brushes. It will take practice and effort, but the process will be fun and rewarding and you can watch your watercolor garden grow along with your talent.
