Wendy Tait shares her passion for watercolours and shows how to capture the beauty and delicacy of a stunning selection of flowers.Inspired by the pleasure of the paint, brush and paper, she uses a series of demonstrations to illustrate her techniques - from initial transparent misty background washes to adding final tiny details. As she overlays the colours the flowers emerge - fuchsia, cyclamen, roses, and more. The qualities of the medium allows her to create light, transparent colours of daffodils and primroses, or the deep, vibrant tones of anemones and tulips.
Whatever your skill level, you will be able to develop your own style with this invaluable easy-to-follow guide.
