Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Though there are many books on the painting of flowers, whether in still lifes or natural settings, this is the best recent book on painting the garden itself. Thus, in addition to good chapters on floral painting, the book treats the painting of soils, climbing vines, weathered wood, fountains, statuary, benches, mossy stones, ferns, and even the small animals sometimes found in the garden. Having authored five other art instruction books for this publisher, Nice is well suited to the task, and her choice of watercolor with pen and ink is ideal for the subject. Highly recommended.
