Book Description

Watercolour is the perfect medium for painting flowers. In this book, Barbara guides you through the step by step techniques and processes required to paint these magnificent blooms.
This is a practical guide which provides photographic references, pencil drawings, and images of each stage of the painting.
Barbara links you to her YouTube video of slides where she was creating the painting herself.
A wonderful lesson guiding you through various intensities of painting the color yellow.
Barbara also shows you how to define leaves in detail, and how to make each object in the painting show form.
Although this lesson explains a representational approach, there is also a wonderful variation at the end of the book of an alternative loose approach to painting sunflowers.

Painting Sunflowers in Watercolour' is Barbara's second book. She assumes the reader has some experience with watercolours. This subject probably isn't for the absolute beginner. Each stage is clearly explained without too much technical information. The link to the YouTube clip is a good idea so you can follow each stage after reading the text. Barbara's passion for her subject and chosen creative field shows in her paintings. A little book worth anyone's money.

5.0 out of 5 stars The beautiful Sunflower November 25, 2012
Verified Purchase
This book gives you all the tips and suggestions you need to master the painting of sunflowers in watercolour. I am lucky enough to have attended Barbara Barrett's workshop on painting sunflowers. It is a lot to take in. So having this book now is a great help and allows you to work on it until you are satisfied , in your own time.
I love the way Barbara takes it slowly section by section.
I would recommend this book to all who love painting in watercolours and have a resulting picture of their own beautiful sunflowers.

Another lovely clear,concise and easy to follow book by Barbara on a favored subject by most artists. With step-by-step instructions and pictures you can practice each stage until you feel confident to complete a final painting. The UTube link is a great idea and helps reinforce the instructions in the guide.
