Kew Book of Painting Roses in Watercolour

Trevor Waugh


Published in Association with Kew Gardens, this stunning book teaches you how to capture the character, colour and form of roses in watercolour, and showcases both historical images from the Kew archives and the author's own extensive collection of inspiring paintings.

The book begins with clear explanations of essential watercolour techniques followed by a short project that allows the reader to explore the nature of watercolour in a practical way. Particular emphasis is placed on mixing colours cleanly in order to reproduce the purity and variety of this much-loved family of flowers. This is followed by sections on how to gather reference material, how to compose your own paintings, and how to inject your paintings with colour and light, all accompanied by three further step-by-step projects, each culminating in a stunning painting of your own.
