You can paint watercolors that capture the beauty and personality of roses, peonies, zinnias and many more brilliant blooms--and achieve color more vivid than you ever dreamed possible with watercolor.

ǾUse watercolor to duplicate and enhance the floral colors you see in nature, from subtle to saturated. ǾCreate dramatic compositions that excite your viewers. ǾComplement your floral subjects with luscious surrounding textures (antique copper, smooth glass, rich fabric) and flattering backgrounds. ǾLearn fun and easy techniques for underpainting, mingling and texturing with 23 step-by-step demonstrations. Don't be a shrinking violet--express yourself with bold watercolor florals that have as much personality as you do!
