-- The SAA ― The SAA Catalogue 19/20

'Re-publication has brought this under the umbrella of Search Press’s relationship with Kew, and this is no bad thing. Kew are a world authority and don’t issue their imprimatur lightly, so there’s considerable added authority here. The crispness of the illustrations also suggests re-origination, so there’s really rather a lot to like here.'

Paint lovely studies of fifty popular flowers with this useful primer.  Every book sold donates money to the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew, funding their vital work.  Aimed at anybody who has some basic skills but wants to extend their art repertoire to include flowers, there is a useful lesson in every project.

As it says on the cover this is an “illustrated directory of techniques” and if you work your way through all the flowers you will amass a wealth of useful watercolor skills.  Start by learning what colors you need to buy plus a brief overview of other materials, and progress though some short techniques which are particularly associated with painting flowers.  Most of these are common to all watercolor work but the examples shown are all of plants so you can discover how to use them in context with floral depiction.  A true beginner will probably require more in-depth instruction for basics such as wet-in-wet, dry brushing, masking out etc but anybody of at least improver level used to painting other subjects will find it useful.  The rest of the book mostly consists of the fifty projects, taking you from agapanthus to zantedeschia.  Each project covers two pages, one showing a picture of the finished work plus a few enlarged areas with notes and the other the method.  Colors are listed with a blob of each which is helpful.  These are all mentioned in the method, which is separated into a staged “Sequence” and at the bottom “Special Detail” which highlights a particular technique which you can learn or perfect with the project. At the back of the book is further help on composing floral groups plus a glossary and index.  The glossary contains both watercolor and botanical terms, and each flower has a short piece describing it.  Choose from a large range of garden and house favorites such as roses, sunflower, waterlily, poppies, tulip, nasturtium, passion flower, bird of paradise, poinsettia, carnation and many more.  The rewards will not only include a wealth of lovely paintings and new skills but also the knowledge that buying this book has helped Kew Gardens’ important work including their Seed Bank.  A good book for anybody who wants to learn how to paint flowers in watercolor.

Don't second guess, just buy it. 50 beautiful different flowers with step by step instructions on how to do it. I ordered on a Saturday, it shipped on Sunday, and arrived Monday afternoon. A glossary is found in the back for a short definition on words maybe new painters aren't familiar with. Perfect gift for the floral artistic individual 😉
