About this book

Trees have inspired artists for generations. This unique watercolour artist's guide offers easy-to-follow, plant-specific information on how to paint a wonderful selection of the most popular species of trees. Beginning with a useful section on materials, The Watercolour A to Z of Trees and Foliage then comprises an illustrated directory of 24 trees, from Acer to Zelkova. Step-by-step sequences show how to paint each one in a fresh, lively style with all the essential details of shape and form beautifully captured. The author explores the overall shapes and masses of branches and leaves, outlines in full foliage, winter trees, branch and twig details, and presents stunning leaf and flower portraits shimmering with life. A source of inspiration, as well as a manual of techniques, this book is a must-have for every tree painter. Purchase of this book supports the vital work of Kew saving plants and fungi around the world that might one day save us.
