The ultimate bundle for Jean Haines fans - Atmospheric Flowers & Paint Yourself Calm for a very special price!

Jean Haines is an intensely spiritual painter and this beautiful guide - Atmospheric Flowers - will help you find your own inner vision.

This is a not a book about painting flowers as botanical specimens, but about capturing their spirit. Jean uses watercolour about as loosely as it's possible to do so and her paintings have an almost iridescent quality that celebrates colour, atmosphere and life. Her flowers shimmer in the light and seem almost to possess movement.

This book is a celebration of watercolour as a medium that can express the inner feelings of the artist more than any other. Whilst firmly rooted in practical art, it is also about creativity and interpretation. There are demonstrations, but they are not at the heart of the project - this book is about learning to see and how to communicate beauty and vision.

Search Press - Hardback - 176 pages - Colour throughout

Even if you don't buy into the new-age idea of mindful self-awareness, Paint Yourself Calm is a book that's fundamentally about the creative process and it makes intriguing reading.

Jean's loose, sometimes almost abstract style can have Zen-like qualities which she uses as a way of channelling her inner thoughts onto paper. The results, as the illustrations show, can be both beautiful for any observer as well as remarkably serene.

From the purely artistic point of view, the process involves allowing your unconscious thoughts to drive what happens with brushes and colours, to think more about a state of mind than a subject. Physical objects such as flowers, butterflies and people are often there, but in the background rather than as the main point of interest.

The creative process is an almost impossible thing to explain, but Jean manages the task remarkably well and this is a book that can help you unlock ways of thinking, seeing and painting you never knew you were capable of.
