Synopsis: A Celebration of Light

Light has the power to make an ordinary flower extraordinary. Inside, Jan Kunz shares simple, step-by-step techniques for capturing that celebrated "glow" in watercolor. A classic approach to a timeless subject, this encore publication of Kunz's best-selling book covers a fabulous range of inspirations, from lilacs artfully arranged in a sterling vase to daisies skipping along a picket fence. Beautifully illustrated pages feature:

   • 20 special floral painting techniques
   • 6 paint-along demonstrations, complete with preliminary drawings
   • a comparison chart of 21 pigments and their special uses for the flower painter
   • coverage of everything from selecting materials and arranging flowers, to mixing glazes for radiant effects


Kunz explains how composition, color theory and other important elements of painting apply to painting flowers, distilling years of experience into key techniques artists can take straight to their work for sparkling results. It's the perfect pick for artists who want to spend more time at the easel and less time reading about it.
