How to paint 50 beautiful flowers
on 5 September 2008
I was really looking forward to browswing through this book, having read the description and the promise of step-by-step guides. I was, however, slightly disappointed that the guides were written text, rather than step-by-step paintings. The text and diagrams also geared more towards detailed pencil drawings of the flowers and whilst there are some detailed paintings, these are rather on the small side, whereas the full page paintings are very loose in style with hardly any detailed drawing needed and offer much less detail ... which I found a bit frustrating as an advancing beginner. The book also includes some flowers I've never heard of "Clivias" whilst omitting common garden flowers "Hollyhocks" which I had hoped to see.
