I am really excited about this book, and have thoroughly enjoyed writing it. For me, my life as a painter is like a journey, in the three year since my first book Painting Flowers and Plants was published, much has happened to make demonstrating the techniques easier, so the step by step projects should be even clearer and easier to follow than before. I have also discovered some exciting new colours and mixes which I have added to my palette, and which I do hope you enjoy working with as much as I do, and so the journey goes on. I hope you enjoy it.
