Kew: The Watercolour Flower Painter's A to Z

An Illustrated Directory of Techniques for Painting 50 Popular Flowers
Adelene Fletcher

Description

From azalea to zantedeschia, this unique watercolour artist's guide offers easy-to-follow, plant-specific information on how to paint over 50 of the most popular species of flower in a crisp and natural style. The author 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 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. Glorious full-colour photographs of the finished watercolour show 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 portait.

If you have never painted flowers before, or have always wanted to capture that specific species on canvas that you've never managed to grow in your own garden, this is the book for you.
