Painting Flowers: A Creative Approach

Siân Dudley

Description

This book encourages you to experiment and play when you paint, to enjoy the process of creating a painting and to develop your own style as you observe and render either a single stem or a full floral abstract. By moving from the tight constraints of botanical illustration, it encourages a looser style of floral paining that allows for a more personal and unique interpretation of the subject. Features include:

  • Observational skills – the importance of looking closely at a subject to see detail in a new way
  • Understanding your materials and equipment – traditional tools and paints, but also how photography and other digital media can be used to the artist's advantage
  • Inspiration and design ideas – ways to express emotions by experimenting with colour, shapes, concepts and narrative
  • Demonstrations, exercises, studio tips and projects guide the way, but the book's emphasis is on developing your own ideas and styles through creative experimentation
