Here is another innovative new Search Press series for the budding artist - how to draw. This initial entry is all about flowers, which is surely one of the most popular subjects for art. All you need is a soft pencil or two, some paints and paper and this book.

This is a real back-to-basics approach, both to the subject of drawing and to writing books on drawing. Forget all those pages devoted to materials and tips, the written descriptions of what you need to do and look instead at a book filled with just diagrams. Who needs words after all, to show how to draw pictures? Every page shows you how, in about eight or nine staged steps, to paint a particular garden flower. At the bottom is a finished tonal drawing done in pencil, and one painted in watercolors. In each of the drawings the previous stage is shown in a different color, so you can see what to do next. It is surprisingly easy to do, although the huge leap from a simple pencil outline to the complex tonal or painted study is far from obvious, and I would have preferred fewer early stages and more showing the later nuances.

A really useful soft back book showing step by step simple illustrations to drawing different flower shapes. Each step is illustrated by use of a different coloured pencil so that it is very easy to distinguish which part needs to be drawn next. There are eight simple steps from first outline to the completed flower. The flowers chosen range from a simple round shaped cosmos to more complex water-lilies and honey suckle but each only require the same eight simple steps.

Using the models shown one could draw almost any flower simply by tailoring a flower already shown to the one wanted. A great book which will enable even absolute beginners to draw stunning flowers by following the simple techniques illustrated.
