Flowers Jun 20, 2008
This is a great book if you are a beginner like me. She is very easy to understand and follow and doesn't get bogged down with symbol shapes,elements and principles of design like some other books. Those books that by the time you get to where they actually start to explain something you can undersatnd...you have had enough of the book anyway. Janet Whittle's book is so easy to follow and she gives you five easy to follow step by step demonstrations. I bought this book for my art teacher as well as a gift and she loved it

Great techniques for flower painting Aug 22, 2005
This must be one of the most useful books in flower paintings I've ever read. Janet tells you in patient steps how to get the background and negative paintings done; and how to lift the colours to get the stems and stalks look natural; how to vein the leaves and colour the petals. I would recommend to anyone thinking seriously on painting flowers.
