Reviews

Are the increasingly dull days and darker evenings getting you down? 'It can't be Autumn yet, we haven't even had Summer' we hear you cry! Well, let Search Press brighten up your life with this new publication. This delightful introduction to drawing exotic flowers shows how images can be built up easily, from initial geometric shapes right through to the finished flowers. Buy this title and even complete beginners will be drawing Japanese Spider Lilies and Oriental Poppies in no time. Hang the finished artwork on your wall or give to a friend as a gift or on a card.-Craft Business A useful introduction to drawing exotic flowers following step by step instructions. A wide range of flowers are included such as Orchids, Amaryllis, Passionflower, Oriental Poppies, Hibiscus, Camellia, Peony and Agapanthus. The design of the flowers is broken down into shapes which just have to be copied (or traced) and used to build up a flower design. The final picture in each case shows the flower in colour. What would be useful is to show the would be flower artist how to achieve the desired colours, shading and three dimensional impact whether it be by pencil or paint. Despite this, the book does offer plenty of inspiration and ideas to encourage people to have a go at drawing these beautiful plants.-Monstersandcritics.com
