About this book

Trudy Friend's watercolour pencil work is breathtaking, and she invites you to share her love of drawing and painting flowers in Drawing & Painting Flowers with Coloured Pencils. Covering flowers in all their glory, you will learn how to draw luminous, convincing flowers in a variety of settings, from garden chrysanthemums to sunflower-thronged landscapes. Watercolour pencils are a creative and rewarding art medium, with many exciting ranges, each with their own distinct techniques and effects. Trudy shows you exactly what you can achieve with each type, and how to combine them in vibrant multi-media pencil paintings.
