Make your own collection of botanical watercolor paintings with this two-book set (an instruction book and corresponding watercolor pad). Once upon a time, a vase of beautifully arranged flowers was the perfect subject for a watercolor still life. Today, indoor house plants reign supreme and palms have replaced peonies as the botanical of choice for artists. With clear step-by-step instructions, illustrator and plant lover Nikki Strange shows you how to paint a range of lush, leafy plants.
- Learn fundamental watercolor techniques as you recreate the glossy leaves of a monstera.
- Master the art of mixing delicate hues by painting different succulents.
- Duplicate the intricate leaves of a fern with a variety of brushes.
