Flowers are a perennial favourite of artists; and what better medium than luminous, delicate watercolour?

Fiona Peart's new book is a complete course in learning to paint flowers, packed with handy hints and tips for new artists or indeed anyone who wants to capture the beauty of flowers with paint. Numerous simple step-by-step exercises are seeded through the book to allow the reader's skills to grow towards more complex and rewarding projects. A range of flowers are included, from hydrangeas to camellias to hellebores.

Fiona's clear, down-to-earth and friendly instructions encourage the reader to try different styles, while the 21 full-size, traceable outlines included mean that even those who don't wish to draw can get started quickly and simply, following the instructions provided.

In the best-selling Absolute Beginner series, this book is suitable for absolutely anyone who wants to take their painting skills further and become an accomplished flower artist.
