Learn how to paint realistic fruit, vegetables and blossom with this beautifully illustrated watercolour course.
Billy Showell's amazing paintings and vibrant palette are showcased here as she clearly explains how to create a huge selection of shapes and textures using detailed step-by-step instructions. Starting with basic techniques and use of colour, she shows how to capture the individuality of spiralling artichokes, the smooth contours of aubergines, the sumptuous reds of glossy peppers, the cool yellows of bananas, the subtle hues of blossom and more. Using traditional methods, overlaying washes, dry brush techniques, glazing, masking - she develops pictures that are exciting and different, sometimes with an unconventional and amusing twist that takes the images on to new, contemporary levels. Explanations on drawing, composition, lighting, painting white subjects are included, along with many different ideas and dozens of useful and helpful tips.

I was suprised to find in this one there are some actual projects to follow a long with which now give me a better idea on how to follow her other book.
No book can be a substitute for a really well taught class on botanical illustration (perhaps harder to find in your area than a copy of Fruit and Vegetable Portraits), but this one is closer to it than any other I have seen. Although Watercolour Flower Portraits is also very good, this is the one I would recommend for the less fussy compositions used in the artist's examples. These paintings are a genuine pleasure in themselves.
