Overview

The book is divided into four main sections covering the seasons, which are then divided into monthly chapters. Each chapter offers one full step-by-step demonstration plus several projects - some simple, some more ambitious - relevant to the time of year. The range of seasonal subjects, with their varying colours, will ensure that Collins Flower Painting Through the Seasons is a visual treat. Subjects are varied, and include seasonal blossoms, seedheads, fruits, berries, and foliage, as well as plants from the hedgerow, orchard, garden, and conservatory.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This unusual flower-painting book delivers even more than its title suggests. Season by season, month by month, Blockley explores blossoms, seedheads, fruits, berries, and foliage. An accomplished author of several art books and the owner of a gallery in the Cotswolds, Blockley ably demonstrates this rich assembly of small observations within orchards, hedgerows, conservatories, and gardens. There are several other good flower-painting books, such as Susan Harrison-Tustain's Glorious Garden Flowers in Watercolor (LJ 3/15/99). This one, however, proceeds from a more balanced perspective on both wild and domestic nature. Highly recommended for all collections. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
