Fresh approach to botanical portraits,
This review is from: Watercolour Flower Portraits (Hardcover)
For watercolour flower painters this book is essential. It shows details of laying washes to achieve realism and delicacy of flower portraits in an almost botanical style. Billy arranges her flowers into the most beautiful paintings and gives tips on composition for you to do the same. The book contains lots of very clear illustrations to follow to achieve the best results, from how to do the first drawing stages, colour mixing to get realistic petals and leaves, and the techniques needed to lay the paint onto the paper to end up with a beautiful flower portrait.
An essential book for anyone wanting to achieve realistic flower portraits
