Roses are one of the most popular flowers, both for gardeners and artists, and this is the definitive guide to painting them.

Trevor is well known for his flower paintings and his interpretations capture not just the look of a bloom, but its character and essence. In this comprehensive but approachable volume, he demonstrates not just individual specimens, but arrangements and settings where colour, light and shade play as much a part as shape and structure.

Trevor has plenty to say about mixing colours and applying paint and also working from photographs and existing artworks - handy sources of reference when living examples are not available. Initial exercises include stems, leaves and petals and there’s plenty to practise with as you build up to your first flower portrait.

There are exercises throughout that, as well as varying the pace of the work also develop your skills with form, light and colourways. Each section concludes with a step-by-step project that brings everything together in a complete painting.

This is an informative, but above all enjoyable look at the bright, fascinating and beautiful world of roses.
