NEW! Expressive Flower Painting

Simple Mixed-Media Techniques for Bold, Beautiful Blooms

Let your creativity bloom with Expressive Flower Painting.

Flowers are one of the most common and beloved subjects for artists. The painting exercises and the process shown in this book have a loose, free, contemporary style — one that's very popular with painters and is widely seen in galleries, in shops, and even on clothing and home design goods. It's not intimidating, and yet the paintings are colorful, immediate, and joyful. The works speak to the artist's desire to play, be loose, and to create freely.

Author and artist Lynn Whipple paints wildly and in small to large formats with a combination of acrylic paint, charcoal, and colorful soft pastel. She uses fresh, abundant flower arrangements as her muse.

Expressive Flower Painting presents a range of creative painting exercises that help readers develop vibrant nature paintings. The book covers mark making, layering techniques, how to do "spin drawings," color methods, painted backgrounds, working from life, and how to successfully combine a wide variety of media for the maximum effect.

Author — Lynn Whipple.
