Publisher Comments:

Four renowned painters show how to create beautiful renderings of flowers in watercolor and acrylics in this vital artist's resource. Pull-out outlines are provided for the 15 step-by-step demonstrations and three other paintings so that readers can bypass the drawing stage and go directly to painting. There are four projects in Wendy Taits delicate watercolor style, featuring transparent washes and luminous, glowing colors. Fiona Peart paints poppies in a free style with scribbling and splatterings of paint, then a bouquet of sunflowers in a more structured style. There are four projects in the botanical style by Michael Lakin, who shows how to paint graded washes, leaving highlights, and then build up stronger washes wet on dry, adding shading and form to produce beautiful, detailed results. Wendy Jelbert paints three varied flower studies in acrylics and demonstrates how to use both watercolor and oil techniques. Based on four titles in the Ready to Paint series—Watercolour Flowers, Flowers in Acrylics, Botanical Flowers, and Vibrant Flowers—this book is the perfect introduction for people who want to create beautiful flower paintings without having to draw.
