Flowers are one of watercolour's most popular subjects and this is one of the best and most
inspiring guides to painting them.
What it isn't is a botanical manual that goes into exhaustive detail. What it is, is an introduction to capturing the essence and colour of a huge variety of flowers, plants, foliage and even butterflies in their natural habitat. In fact, it's almost not about flowers
at all, but rather a guide to working with watercolour and its many technical properties.
Although there's no shortage of instruction, projects, exercises and demonstrations, the book never feels like work. Janet is an accomplished painter, but you never feel that this is something beyond you, rather that there's nothing you couldn't achieve with the right help and encouragement - both of which you'll get here.
This is a revised edition of Janet's first book, but it's been re-worked, redesigned and expanded beyond recognition and is a must-have even if you have the original.
