Creating Radiant Flowers in Colored Pencil Book with Gary Greene

Coloured pencils are an ideal medium for depicting flowers as they can produce very fine lines and offer plenty of opportunities for shading and tints.

This easy-to-follow guide by the rightly popular author Gary Greene features 64 demonstrations of 54 different flower types, from Azaleas to Zinnias.

Although the book originates in the US, hardly any of the varieties will be unfamiliar and you'll find daffodils, foxgloves and roses as well as begonias, fuchsias and rhododendrons.

Each demonstration occupies no more than a single spread (and sometimes a single page) and includes a full colour palette as well as a list of the stages to completion.

Whilst this is not the full step-by-step process, it makes the book straightforward to use and the illustrations are all well-annotated so that you can see exactly what's going on where.

Gary also includes introductory chapters on the different types of pencil available and their colour ranges as well as details of techniques including layering, burnishing and underpainting.

All of this makes this book the perfect introduction to painting flowers in a rewarding and versatile medium.
