CR Mackintosh Watercolour Flowers by Fiona Peart PROJECT BOOK SOLD OUT

There are five step by step painting projects in this lovely book as well as a bonus tracing layout featuring Borage. This book is particularly good if you are not too good at drawing as although the line drawings are fairly complex these are all provided for you!
The five step by step projects are Larkspur, Anemonie and Pasque Anemonies Lavateria
and Garden Flowers. I demonstrate all the techniques you need to create these lovely botanical paintings based on the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh 1868 - 1928. I have included a section about the artist as well as a section on materials and how to transfer the tracing images.
This book is an absolute MUST for anyone who likes flower painting. Its totally different from my Vibrant Flowers and Tulips books
Book Review - by Henry Malt
Charles Rennie Mackintosh is one of the most iconic designers of the twentieth century and his style falls somewhere between Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts, taking the best of both and distilling them into something simple, elegant and timeless.
As such, any book that looks at his flower painting is going to have a lot to teach you about bringing those qualities to a subject that positively cries out for them. Using the pre-drawn tracings that are the bedrock of this series, Fiona Peart includes five classic images ranging from single blooms and stems to varied arrangements.
This isn’t a book just (even?) for the beginner. If you feel anything but confident with your flower painting, give it a go. The approach is elementary, but the results are anything but that.
