This beautifully illustrated practical guide provides a year-long course in watercolour flower painting. Suitable for artists of all skill levels, it contains both step-by-step demonstrations and more challenging projects.
The book is divided into monthly chapters, revealing that the quieter seasons of autumn and winter offer just as many flower painting possibilities as the busy spring and summer months. Each chapter contains one full step-by-step demonstration plus several projects relevant to the time of year. Some of these are quite simple, but others are more ambitious and offer alternative ideas for subsequent painting sessions and different levels of expertise.
The range of seasonal subjects covered, with their varying colours, includes blossoms, seedheads, fruits, berries and foliage, from the hedgerow, orchard, vegetable garden and conservatory as well as the garden.
Ann Blockley is particularly well known for her flower paintings and this book is a real visual treat, as well as an inspirational guide to the practical aspects of painting flowers in watercolour.

'Collins Flower Painting Through the Seasons' provides a year-long painting course in watercolour, and reveals that the seemingly quiet seasons of autumn and winter offer just as many possibilities for flower painting as the busy spring and summer months.
This superbly illustrated book contains four sections covering the seasons, which are then divided into monthly chapters. Each chapter features one full step-by-step demonstration and a number of practical projects – some simple, some more ambitious – which means whatever time of year, you will be able to dip into the book and find a selection of inspiring painting ideas. Many of the projects can be repeated on different levels as your work progresses, to stimulate your imagination further and to provide greater challenges for the more experienced painter.
This book includes:
• 'Practical projects' relating to aspects of painting that are relevant to each month
