Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

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. The book includes: Practical projects relating to aspects of painting appropriate to the month in question Step-by-step demonstrations for each month of the year, with alternative ideas for subsequent painting sessions and different levels of expertise Varied subjects including seasonal blossoms, seedheads, fruits, berries and foliage, from the hedgerow, orchard, vegetable garden and conservatory as well as the garden

Library Journal Review

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. (c) Copyright 2010.
