Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Discover a fresh, fun approach to painting unique flowers! Forgo reference photos and discover a more organic and joyful way of painting! With its friendly step-by-step format, Painting Imaginary Flowers features a simple, three-stage approach to creating flowers only you can make... * Drop in colour (ink, watercolour or fluid acrylics) to create abstract backgrounds full of beautiful textures and "blooms." * Just like spotting shapes in the clouds, search for shapes in your background that suggest blossoms and leaves. Paint around them and watch the flowers emerge! * Add patterns in pen to create a lovely, faux collage effect. With plenty of mixed-media techniques throughout for building up luscious texture and colour, even beginners can achieve happy results. Ten demonstrations show the versatility of this approach - from large-format pieces, to work in a series, and even Zen doodle landscapes. Never again will you be stuck for ideas or dependent on a photo. Every flower you paint will be unique, personal, and fresh from your imagination! Let your imagination blossom! AUTHOR: Originally from France, Sandrine Pelissier paints landscapes, figures and still lifes, mixing elements of drawing and patterning into her paintings.
