A Word From the Editor:

“We have assembled this book from some of the best teaching available on painting flowers with watercolor. We’ve started at the very beginning with the basic supplies you’ll need and information on color. There’s a large section of twenty-five step-by-step demonstrations and a section of invaluable information about flower shapes and textures. We’ve also included tips on painting interesting elements such as dewdrops.

The next time a field of wildflowers takes your breath away or the elegance of a single rosebud leaves you speechless, grab this book, along with you palette and brushes. It will take practice and effort, but the process will be fun and rewarding and you can watch your watercolor garden grow along with your talent.” — Rachel Rubin Wolf

Check Out This Exceprt From Basic Flower Painting Techniques in Watercolor:

You will find many uses for frosted, or matte (depending on the brand name), acetate; the sheets are translucent and the surface readily accepts pen or pencil. The acetate chosen should be thick enough to withstand handling (0.005 or 0.007 is best). If you have difficulty in obtaining frosted acetate, ask an art supply dealer to get it for you. Grafix Acetate and Pro/Art are two of the brands available; they come in tablets of 9” x 12” sheets. Don’t buy clear acetate – it’s too smooth to accept the pencil.

The transparent quality of frosted acetate makes it possible to draw on several pieces and then superimpose them on one another to create a composition.

You can make an acetate frisket for use in lifting color from small areas. Just place the acetate over the painting and use a pencil to outline the area to be lifted. Remove the acetate and carefully cut out the outlined shape with a craft knife. Next, place the acetate frisket over the painting and remove the offending area with moistening stiff brush (like the modified oil brush). Corrections of this kind defy detection, but they should be used only when the painting is near completion. Stiff brushing can distress the paper to the point that it will not accept more pigment well.
