To my mind, the subject of flowers and the medium of watercolour are meant for one another. The unique transparency of watercolour lends itself perfectly to capturing the beauty and freedom of nature's blooms, and it never ceases to amaze me what can be done with a drop of water and some artist's colours.
Following some simple guidelines, it is possible to create a successful watercolour painting of flowers in just 30 minutes. To encourage you to try this challenge, I have made the techniques and instruction in this book as straightforward as possible to make it easy to reach an exciting and rewarding result.
