Drawing on previously published material from Search Press's Leisure Arts and Watercolour Tips and Techniques series, Watercolour Flowers: Step by Step includes advice from Wendy Tait, Jackie Barras, Richard Bolton and Ann Mortimer. Each of the artists has their own unique watercolour style so this book provides a wide range of information that will encourage you to paint successful flower paintings in a variety of ways. The book is divided into four sections: Wendy Tait focuses on wild flowers, Jackie Barras looks at how to achieve light in flower painting, Richard Bolton explores how to develop creative techniques and Ann Mortimer concludes by painting flowers in the landscape. There are also 12 projects for you to work through.* Leisure Painter - December 2020 *
