This handy guide will show you everything you need to know to create successful flower paintings. There are six sheets of watercolour paper pre-printed with outlines to get you started and the book is spiral bound to lie flat while you’re using it.
As well as an introduction to the concept, Julie will take you through the basic techniques of preparation, working with your materials, colour mixing and so on.
Once you’ve mastered the basics, you’re ready to move on to the projects. Each one covers a different flower type, and also introduces you to a different range of techniques – graduated washes, on-paper mixing, lifting out and so on. Rather than trying to get to grips with everything at once, your skills are built up gently, with results at every stage to spur you on.
Each project comes with a full step-by-step demonstration that includes plenty of illustrations and instructions. There are also handy hints and tips along the way that will help you develop your technique and confidence.
This is an encouraging and inspiring approach that doesn’t overwhelm at any point and you can work at your own pace, being sure of a successful result every time.
