Can't paint? Don't know what to paint? The Paint It series is the answer. Leading artists present a range of popular subjects and each Paint It contains one step-by-step demonstration, the full-sized finished picture, plus an A3 tracing of the picture outline – so you don't need any drawing skills at all. Just transfer the subject image on to the painting surface, then follow the stage photographs, which clearly illustrate what you should do next. All the authors use some interesting techniques to create their pictures, with many tips and ideas for using colour, creating distance, mixing greens and more, so even more experienced artists will find something new here.
Foxgloves in Acrylics features: one project; one tracing; step-by-step instructions; and, a project taken from Ready to Paint: Flowers in Acrylics
