Publisher Comments:

Here's the perfect book for anyone who has ever wanted to peek in an artist's sketchbook and see "exactly how a beautiful picture was created. "The Watercolor Artist's Flower Handbook offers an intimate behind-the-scenes look at the working process of 13 leading floral artists--"plus a section packed with advice on choosing materials, learning to see and record plant structure, and using specific techniques, including choosing a palette, blending, broken color, wet-on-wet, wet-on-dry, glazing, drybrush, highlights, and washes. As the reader becomes an artist or adds new skills, it's time to try the ready-to-paint bound-in postcards, great for sharing with friends or framing as cherished keepsakes. Every artist, from beginner to professional, will grow and blossom with "The Watercolor Artist's Flower Handbook!

Book News Annotation:

In this collection of reflections and observations by leading artists, the real plants nestle amongst those painted so readers can compare and learn about how 13 very different people interpret structures, colors, and themes of flowers. The text begins with a guide to materials, keeping a sketchbook, learning to look, and choosing and mixing colors, and then the artists take over, each with her own understanding of the subject. The illustrations are gorgeous and are annotated by the artist or by author Seligman, often showing stages of work and commenting on preparing color and line. Seligman includes postcards for readers' use and an unexpected and useful index.
