It's a PDF file, so it can be printed. As far as selling the lessons you've done, here is the "Message from the Author found in the book:
Message from the Author:
Painting flowers is one of my favorite pastimes. This is a wonderful way to escape the long winters we have in Ohio. I sometimes take myself to a local greenhouse (being careful that it's not before a major holiday when they will be too busy to move around my setup!). The air is warm and humid (great for the skin) and I can imagine that I am in the tropics.
It's always best to paint from life, the real thing, rather than a photo. You will get a fresh look and you will mix your colors much more accurately.
If you must paint from photos, make sure that you have taken the photo yourself. To copy another's photo may create problems with the copyright laws, and you don't want to get in trouble! People ask why would it be a copyright infringement. Several reasons apply here. The photographer, or artist, has designed the photo, its negative space, the lighting, etc. They have done the creative work for you. Just because you painted it doesn't mean that it is your work. To design work of your own begins with the idea, then the layout or deisng, then the execution.
The following step-by-step demonstrations are free for you to use because they are lessons in technique. But remember, they are not your own design, so they should not be entered in juried competitions or for sale as your own. I hold the copyright of all work that is published here.
