Jean Haines is an intensely spiritual painter and this beautiful guide will help you find your own inner vision.
This is a not a book about painting flowers as botanical specimens, but about capturing their spirit. Jean uses watercolour about as loosely as it’s possible to do so and her paintings have an almost iridescent quality that celebrates colour, atmosphere and life. Her flowers shimmer in the light and seem almost to possess movement.
This book is a celebration of watercolour as a medium that can express the inner feelings of the artist more than any other. Whilst firmly rooted in practical art, it is also about creativity and interpretation. There are demonstrations, but they are not at the heart of the project – this book is about learning to see and how to communicate beauty and vision.
