About the Author

Wendy Tait gave demonstrations and taught classes to art clubs and societies. Although she no longer teaches, she remains as busy as ever, enjoying writing and illustrating books and painting in several different media.

Richard Bolton is a professional watercolour artist who enjoys travelling and painting. He has written a number of successful art books from his visits around the world. He now lives and works in New Zealand with his wife.

Jackie Barrass worked in international banking for many years, before deciding to devote more time to her interest in art. Her expressive watercolours and works in other media can be seen in galleries and exhibitions around Surrey and in Hampshire where she lives. She now paints under the name of Jackie Walker.

Ann Mortimer is a professional artist and watercolour tutor, and is a member of the Society of Floral Painters with whom she exhibits regularly. She has written several articles for Leisure Painter magazine. Ann lives in Nottinghamshire with her husband.


Authored by four professional artists, this book guides you through the process to paint beautiful blooms. Wendy Tait shows you the essentials for painting wild flowers, teaching you composition, whilst Jackie Barrass focuses on achieving light within your paintings. Richard Bolton explores more techniques, and Ann Mortimer provides expert advice on painting floral depiction in landscapes. Each section helps any artist create their own style using watercolours.

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.

Watercolour Flowers Step-by-Step is a title that manages to stand out in one of the craft's most competitive fields. Giving crafters the chance to either establish or hone their card front florals, it's driven by a bundle of projects outlined with clear and concise instructions that manage to offer something to beginners, intermediates, and even experts.

Some inspiring projects, and a mix of techniques to try. They are good tutorials if you have some experience or understanding of watercolour. Overall I'd say an inspiring book with nice ideas.
