Both traditional and more innovative watercolour techniques are covered in this beautiful book, ranging from laying a simple wash on a pansy to using interesting texture-making processes to suggest seed heads or ruffled petals. Advice is also given on using gouache and colourful watercolour inks. The step by step demonstrations featuring a wide variety of flowers were very instructive, and the use of a number of different interpretations of similar objects for comparison helped enormously. Absolutely stunning illustrations.

Flower Painting is addective! All it needs is practice, getting to grips with colour mixes and the dreaded "Tone". When you find that that this is the mix of darks, mediums and lights the penny drops!!!! When you have sorted that you are away. This book gives you a good head start. Each excersie is better than the last

A very good book for flowers in watercolour. I first of all wished to purchase the new edition and found that it was out of print. Therefore I went for this edition. I have since checked with a friend and this edition is exactly the same as the new one only with a different cover! I am very glad that I actually purchased this edition as I was quite disappointed that the new one was out of print. Good old Amazon with second hand books for sale.

I couldn't recommend this book higly enough and have shared it with fellow artists who feel the same. Lovely pictures and lots of hints which are really useful for artists at all levels.

A beautiful book, well documented and illustrated. Not hard to understand or follow. Had this book from local library and decided to purchase it for further practice.

I think this is a really useful beginner book. It's clear, simple to understand and the advice given makes sense. It's particularly relevent to people beginning life classes or portraiture.

I love Ann Bloskley's paintings and her books have urged me to try something a bit different in my own paintings.
I bought this book for a friend for her birthday, she said she needed inspiration so this will kick start her creativity!
