4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Brushstrokes - Maureen McNaughton 18 Oct 2008
Format:Paperback
I love this book. It is a gives a slight slant on painting flowers. It is clear and concise and if you dont want to read the instructions the pictures are more than adequate in their step by step promotion of the projects.

I found the book to be a wonderful asset. Maureen McNaughton is a wonderful artist and a good teacher. Her skills carry through this book in both areas. It is a totally different type of decorative painting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Use the pattterns 9 April 2013
By Dolores Mccann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I used one pattern to paint my brag book. To get the pattern I placed my kindle on the floor and took a picture of the pattern. I sized it on my computer. I THEN took pictures of the instruction pages and printed those out too. Was very legible. Colors were not great but that was okay. Now I know I can use my kindle with paint pattern books. Hope this helps someone.
