Publisher Comments:

Those who want to learn to paint orchids without relying on their drawing skills have everything they need in this book. With tracings for readers to pull out and transfer on to watercolor paper and full instructions on how to do so, there is one tracing for each of the five step-by-step projects, plus a bonus tracing of the inspirational painting in the introduction. The orchid family is a diverse and widespread group of flowering plants with colorful blooms, providing a vast selection of beautiful flowers to take inspiration from. In this book, Ann Mortimer has selected a pink miltonia, a backlit phalaenopsis, a slipper orchid, a miltonia orchid, and an orchid in a bowl. The tracings and clear, step-by-step photographs explain the often-complex watercolor painting process in-depth, making it easy for readers to reproduce all of the projects.

Synopsis:

Ann Mortimer shows you how to paint beautiful orchids – the most exotic and vibrant of flowers. Artists who want to learn how to paint their complex shapes without relying on their drawing skills have everything they need, and more experienced artists will be inspired by Anns striking paintings.
