Picture this! You've always wanted to paint. You have some materials and time put aside, and suddenly, faced with that scary first sheet of watercolor paper, you need help. This book helps beginning artists take those first daunting steps by using tracings to draw and paint five beautiful floral paintings, including poppies, daisies, roses, pansies, primroses, jonquils, and daffodils.
With tips for tracing and transferring the image onto watercolor paper and a detailed section on the necessary materials, this guide makes painting flowers simple and accessible, allowing novice painters to develop their skills. Not only do these elegant and vibrant projects build the confidence and techniques of any aspiring artist, they also result in lovely paintings suitable for framing.
