Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

By first explaining basic techniques and color selection, this guide for botanical and amateur artists of all skill levels shows how to capture the individuality of blossoming artichokes, the smooth contours of eggplants, the sumptuous reds of glossy peppers, the cool yellows of bananas, and much more. Using traditional methods that include overlaying washes, dry brush techniques, glazing, and masking—sometimes with an unconventional and amusing twist—the amazing paintings and vibrant palette showcased here clearly explain how to create a terrific selection of shapes and textures, each accompanied by detailed, step-by-step instructions.

Synopsis:

Billy showell's exquisitely executed watercolour portraits of fruit and vegetables give an unconventional, often amusing, twist to traditional botanical studies, taking them on to a new and exciting contemporary level.
