Painting Flowers in Watercolor
An Ebook by Mary Ann Boysen
In the 10 chapters of the Painting Flowers in Watercolor Ebook, there are step-by-step demonstrations of

the finished product.
This is a useful technique in all paintings, but especially in florals.

without a background. It is another free and easy way to make your floral
paintings free-flowing and yet as detailed as you wish them to be. Backgrounds
can also be added to paintings like this, but not necessarily if they are
I am sure you will find this book to be informative and helpful in your painting
process. Click here to begin
