Painting folk art flowers
Hoessinger is a lovely artist. I cannot come close to her ability; but her book gives me something to aim for. Brilliant illustrations and clear directions.
This Enid Hoessinger book is a gem!

I love it! I was very lucky to get this book at such a good price. I bought it used but arrived in great shape. I’m happy for electing it. It has a lot of very useful information to improve or learn the famous 13 strokes of Enid.

Enid’s book is very inspiring and her technique is not difficult to learn. With practice you can paint beautifully blended flowers in no time, with one stroke of the brush. It is all in how you load the brush and she shows how to do this step by step. This is one book for those who don’t want to buy a lot of brushes or paints. The end result is astonishing…I can whip up a floral bouquet in no time with Enid’s technique and her explicit instructions. If you have a hard time with float-shading…this book is for you!!
I’ve used this book over and over again!

Enid’s style of painting takes practice, but speaking as someone who prefers immediate gratification, the improvement in my overall technique was well worth the effort. I refer back to the book to refresh my memory for specific details and for design ideas over and over. It’s one of my favorite references.
