Book Synopsis:

A gardenful of beautiful spring Irises in bloom is one of the most stunning sights of all, and Julie King shows you how to paint them in this inspiring book. Artists who want to learn how to create realistic pictures of these popular flowers without relying on their drawing skills have everything they need, and more experienced artists will find much to inspire them. The tracings make it easy for readers to reproduce all the projects and clear step-by-step photographs explain the watercolour painting process in great detail. Here you will find, Dutch, gold and rust, deep purple and white irises in a variety of compositions, and Julie's instructions will clearly guide you through every stage, illustrating in easy ways how to create wonderful paintings full of colour and light.

About the Author:

After graduating with a first class degree in textile design, Julie worked as an in-house designer of household textiles before freelancing for several years creating fabrics, wallpapers and designs for ceramics; all inspired by her love of flowers. Julie lives in Kent, England where she now paints to commission, contributes articles to Leisure Painter magazine and runs watercolour classes.

Julies love for flowers and the natural world shines through in her paintings. Her style is varied, from delicate translucent watercolours to a free style bold ink and watercolour interpretation, for which she received the SBA Certificate of Botanical Merit.
