Julie King’s deep and abiding love for flowers and the natural world is apparent in the wonderful delicacy and vibrancy of her watercolor flower paintings.
This extraordinary complement to the How to Paint series offers three comprehensive step-by-step demonstrations and assistance with selecting paints, brushes, and other materials. It also delivers clear guidance about applying watercolor techniques, including negative painting, masking, washes, and more.
After graduating with a first class degree in textile design, Julie King worked as an in-house designer of household textiles before freelancing for several years. She created fabrics, wallpapers, and ceramics, all inspired by her deep love of flowers. King was awarded the Society of Botanical Artists Certificate of Botanical Merit, judged by the Senior Conservator at Kew Gardens, for her freestyle interpretation of an iris. A contributor to Leisure Painter magazine, King paints and runs regular classes for adults as well as painting days in National Trust and privately owned gardens. She lives in Kent, England.
