Great techniques for flower painting

This must be one of the most useful books in flower paintings I’ve ever read. Janet tells you in patient steps how to get the background and negative paintings done; and how to lift the colours to get the stems and stalks look natural; how to vein the leaves and colour the petals. I would recommend to anyone thinking seriously on painting flowers.

This is a great book if you are a beginner like me. She is very easy to understand and follow and doesn’t get bogged down with symbol shapes,elements and principles of design like some other books.
Very, very nice!

I’m a gallery-represented watercolorist and have amassed many watercolor related books in my art library over the years. But I can honestly say, this is one of the most beautiful and inspiring wc books I have ever seen. You don’t have to be a beginner to appreciate its merits! A friend of mine gave this treasure to me as a gift and I am so grateful. The author does some of the prettiest floral art I’ve seen. Great tips throughout. I would definitely recommend this book.

This is a brilliant “tool” for any would-be flower artist, hobby painter – or an established painter who just needs an extra creative push! Janet Whittle has an exceptionally easy style of explaining in words and showing, in painting … just how an expert does it!!!

If you love to watercolor paint, love flowers and asked your self “how do I do that?” this book is for you,it will show you the how to’s, step by step. I love the bright colors. Take a real look at the backgrounds there are easy ways to put in and make your picture really pop. This is a must book for all who love flowers.
Good reading for new painter
One who is just getting into watercolor maybe their first year will learn from this. Someone doing it awhile longer may even pick up a point or find it a good review. I’ve been into w.c. quite a few years. I enjoyed reading it & I’m passing it on to a frind who started about a yr ago.
Enjoy painting flowers.
I found this helpful and was able to follow instructions which were clear. The color choice and application added to my enjoyment.
