Ready to Paint in 30 Minutes: Flowers in Watercolour by Ann Mortimer


Out of stock


This complete beginner’s guide to painting flowers in watercolour is ideal if you want to learn to paint but are short on time. Each of the 35 quick and easy paintings takes no more than 30 minutes to complete, and will teach you how to paint flowers of different shapes, colours and families – lilies, orchids and hellebores amongst others – or learn a key technique such as masking out, working wet in wet and mixing colours. The paintings are all worked at postcard size – ideal for a 6 x 4in (A6) watercolour pad, and tracings are included for each study. Each painting is a work of art in its own right, and can be stored in your portfolio for reference later, or framed and displayed to impress your friends. The book is broken down into five chapters that focus on working with watercolour, watercolour techniques, colour and tone, form and detail, and finally flowers in context. The final section of the book contains three complete paintings that demonstrate how to combine all the techniques and elements you’ve gleaned from the preceding chapters. These paintings, too, are accompanied by actual-size tracings.
