In this book, Jean Martin shows how to produce superior flower paintings full of intense colour; variation in paint quality and luminous light. Her imaginative set-ups are unique and the paint is applied in an expressive way. The result is an appealing, expressive composition that can only be achieved through strong structure. She begins by discussing materials and techniques for flower paintings, then shows how to tackle a variety of simple flowers as well as fabric, folds, patterns and still life objects such as curios, crockery, vases and ornaments. Martin then demonstrates how to combine these elements to paint a variety of complex flower still lifes. Broken down in this easy-to-understand fashion, readers can clearly see how to paint such watercolours themselves. Martin also includes advice on the effects of different lighting, and guidelines for combining expressive watercolour with other media.
