Watercolorists want to infuse their flowers with drama and intimacy. This book shows them how by capturing nature's beauty from a close-focus point of view. Easy-to-learn techniques for mingling colors and manipulating light, insights into the character of petals, designing composition and more essential information for portraying these dramatic viewpoints is included. Artists will also learn to: choose the best materials and handle them properly; mix luminous colors and avoid making mud; paint with a variety of methods, from wet-in-wet mingling to glazing; master texture and lifting techniques; understand flower forms and shapes.
