About this book

Practice flower painting at your leisure, without having to worry about seasonal availability, changing light, or your subject altering in appearance as buds open or fade.

Painting Watercolour Flowers from Photographs is a beautiful collection of 60 superb flower images by professional nature photographers. Each photograph is accompanied by a step-by-step painting demonstration, with advice on special techniques and working methods, palette choices, and colour-mixing tips.

Capture the magic of wild flowers in fields and forests, portray intricate single specimens with botanical accuracy, or paint elaborate, exotic floral arrangements. All techniques are clearly explained, from laying washes to methods of salt granulation and wax resist, with advice on bringing detail and vitality to your flower paintings.
