Book Description

From Agapanthus to Zantedeschia, this unique watercolour artists guide offers easy-to-follow, plant-specific information on how to paint 50 of the most popular species of flower, with the help and guidance of renowned watercolour artist Adelene Fletcher.

'A stunning book which helps you through all the tough aspects of painting flowers. Read this and you will be able to capture the fragility of each and every flower with care.' - Review of the previous edition, minigallery.co.uk

A brand new edition of the bestselling book, endorsed by the Royal Botanic Garden at Kew, by renowned watercolour artist Adelene Fletcher.

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. Adelene 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.
