Format: Paperback
I loved the layout of this book. The first 2 chapters explain the brushes and basic painting techniques with very clear pictures. The third chapter shows you color blocks of the paint used in the book. This is very helpful if you need to match a different brand of paint. The A to Z flower projects are shown close up so the detail really shows and each project has step by step photo's of Donna building the flowers. I loved the example pages of filler flowers and shadow leaves. But the last part of the book on Floral Design and Composition is especially helpful to any who struggle with placement and design.

Format: Paperback
This is my favorite One Stroke book thus far. However, I had already purchased her video "flowers for all seasons" and the "one stroke painting course" and "easy murals" books, so I had a feel for the basics. Her books tend to have some of the same information in each (which I find annoying), but "flowers A to Z" has a lot of variety, so you can learn a lot of techniques just by going through and trying the different flowers. I disagree with the reviewer who claimed the pictures are of poor quality...they look fine to me. Overall, I think this book is a good value.

Dewberry offers a wide variety of one-stroke flowers to paint using clear instructions. The real beauty using her painting method is the lack of "must do" instructions. Instead, the author gives clear directions on how to make nifty decorative flowers that are easily painted without patterns. A good read for the novice decorative painter like me.

This book is awesome! I have many of Donna's books but this is my favorite. I've been painting using the One Stroke method for about 5 months and I'm HOOKED! I've taken 13 classes with my local OSCI since then, which is the best way to improve your OS painting skills, but this book is a great compliment to those classes. Donna uses about 15 pages in the beginning of the book to go over materials, techniques and colors. Then she covers 50 flowers/blooms using 2 pages for each. The picture of her finished piece is a full page and of course very colorful. Then on the opposite page it lists the brushes and paints you'll need and a step by step guide on how to paint the flower(s). But it doesn't stop there. She uses 14 pages at the end to cover filler flowers and floral composition. Finally the last 2 pages are a gallery of floral project ideas. This is an invaluable resource! Enjoy!

I have several Donna Dewberry books. I would have to say this book is not her best showing. Directions were very poor for a new painter. Finished photos of poor quality. Thumbs down on this one.

Format: Paperback
I enjoyed the instructions in this book. First, a detailed explanation of how to complete each type of stroke is given. Then, the book has detailed information on how to paint many different types of flowers and arrangements. And finally,(this is the best part) it goes on to explain how to create original arrangements depending on the surface space the painter has to work with. This book was well written and easy to follow

Beautifully presented book and worth every penny.However, patience is needed by the bucket load and I suggest to have taken lessons before trying these lovely paintings.Once you know how the world is your oyster .

I checked out all her books and this one is the most complete. It shows most of what she paints on TV. Her other books cover mostly one type, this is packed.

I can't give you any more details because I didn't purchase this to learn her technique; I am a watercolorist and was looking to see if she had any interesting movements of the brush that I haven't seen yet.
