Fantastic Instruction on technique, color and texture for painters- especially beginners!

I have had time to read through this book and attempt the two paintings attached. This book teaches technique but also lists the actual paint colors. Blending the correct paint colors really helps me. I had only painted with book instruction prior to attempting this and that was 25 years ago ( cartoons on a nursery wall). This book has been really valuable to me. I go REALLY SLOW, and take it one step at a time, but I like my progress so far.

I would give this book more stars if I could!

I have numerous books on painting flowers, but this one is by far the best of them all! The directions give you a step-by-step with photos and insets to assist you. I have completed one of the paintings so far and have learned so many techniques to make my flower paintings more alive! I love this book! I will note that you would probably need a little experience in painting with acrylics as this book doesn’t tell you what size or type brush, or a certain paper to use, but it gives the colors used and when to use them. It does give a lot of information on how to draw flowers as well. If you want to learn how to paint beautiful florals, this is the book to have! I wouldn’t part with it for any amount of money!

I was not sure if I should order this book, with so many painting books out there; did I really need this one? The price was low and that was good. Plus, I did want to know more in detail how to paint flowers better.

This is a beautifully illustrated book for any artist who loves flowers, but it’s not for beginners. The paints and mediums required to get the effects as shown are not in the range commonly used by a notice painter. Good information though somewhat technical. Don’t expect to produce delicate paintings at this level of difficulty without a lot of practice.

I love to paint flowers

Good painting techniques and flower structure tips…just wish more flowers, and particular leaves were covered (like about 200 more) What a thick reference that would be.
