A brand new edition of the bestselling book, endorsed by the Royal Botanic Garden at Kew, by renowned watercolour artist Adelene Fletcher.
If you have never painted flowers before or perhaps have always wanted to capture the beauty of flowers on canvas that you have perhaps never managed to grow in your own garden, then this beautiful and practical book is for you.
From azalea to zantedeschia, this unique guide features easy to follow plant-specific information on how to paint over 50 of the most popular flower species in a crisp and natural style. Adelene teaches you the essential skills of creating a realistic structure and form of a flower by close observation of the pattern of light and shade on the petals and foliage.
Included are step-by-step photographs, details, and instructions on capturing the individual essence of the flower, together with comprehensive information on the appropriate techniques and colour mixes to use.
The book contains glorious full-colour photographs of the finished watercolour showing the depth and variety of the plant portraits, from the exquisitely executed passion flower to the bold luminosity of the oriental poppy. Finally, a handy colour key is included for every flower, helping you prepare your palette before delving into your floral portrait.
