How to Draw Flowers
I wish I could draw, is a phrase I have heard many times from students and friends. They say this because in many cases they have not tried to draw since their school days, or they have been told they have no talent so they are not confident about their abilities. Actually anything is achievable as long as the basic principles are understood. Some people have more of an aptitude than others, but drawing is something that is rewarding and enjoyable. All you need is the confidence to try and the motivation which this book is designed to provide. the flowers are broken down into simple shapes and the tonal study is included along with the painting to give you ideas for colours should you wish to paint later.
What they say...
