Paint flowers with feeling!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. In this expanded edition of Soon Y. Warren’s best-selling book, she will help you: • Capture the unique shapes, textures, details–and temperaments–of magnolias, hibiscus, sunflowers, bougainvillea, gladiolus, dahlias, water lilies and more. • Use watercolor to duplicate and enhance the floral colors you see in nature, from subtle to saturated. • Create dramatic compositions that excite your viewers. • Complement your floral subjects with luscious surrounding textures (antique copper, smooth glass, rich fabric) and flattering backgrounds. • Learn 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!
Soon Warren is a member of the National Watercolor Society, Southern Watercolor Artist, Texas Watercolor Society and the Society of Watercolor Artists. She paints and teaches at her studio in addition to giving demonstrations and workshops for artist organizations.
