Out of Print
Offering simplified, inspirational step-by-step guidance, she explores all the techniques required to create beautiful, translucent flowers - from laying initial loose misty background washes to building up colours and adding highlights. She then shows how to paint a honeysuckle spray, wild roses and bluebells using a series of colourful step-by-step photographs. Each demonstration takes you right through the painting process, showing exactly how to lay down washes, overlay colours and how to finish off with texture and detail.
Beautifully illustrated with Wendy's paintings, this book will inspire beginners and more experienced artists to paint what they see - and to capture the fresh colours and fascinating shapes of the many different wild flowers that can be found around us.
