Painting Flowers in Watercolour

A Naturalistic Approach

Book - 2001
Rate this:
Painting flowers has long been popular with artists, and there have been many books written on the subject. What makes this book different is the author's naturalistic approach to painting. The resulting watercolors are botanically correct but also show the beauty of flowers in a very real way -- the velvety quality of a petal, the delicate colors, the gloss of a leaf.

In this book, Coral G. Guest talks about how best to achieve not only the colors but also the textures and shadings that are so important in painting flowers. She has chosen a wide variety of plants, and in a series of illustrations shows how -- step by step -- she has developed each painting. The result is a most inspirational and stunning guide for any artist wanting to make his or her paintings look more natural.
