The aim of this book is to inspire amateur artists to create beautiful flower paintings in watercolour by developing their own style right from the start. With this in mind, the book contains plenty of instruction on essential watercolour techniques and methods, and includes the following key features: projects - practical projects, with a system of self-assessment to monitor progress; demonstrations - developing a painting step-by-step; exercises - additional exercises to put theory into practice; ideas - flowers with still life, in garden settings, close-up compositions, flowers in the landscape, flower portraits and studies; and inspiration - a wide selection of flower paintings to show different styles and techniques. The book features paintings by the author and a number of other well-known contemporary artists, including John Lidzey, Shirley Trevena and Ann Blockley. It adopts a workshop approach, with practical projects, exercises and step-by-step demos.
