Product Information

Trudy Friend's latest book explores the joyful world of flowers - not in isolation as is so often the case - but in their settings, whether that is an overflowing window box or a herbaceous borders, flowers in a cornfield or blossom-laden trees. Using coloured pencils, both hard and water-soluble varieties, Trudy shows you how to use them to best effect, with clear examples of techniques, step-by-step stages to follow and plenty of Trudy's annotated drawings. There's useful information on creating textures, using masking fluid, and working from photographs. Readers of Leisure Painter will be familiar with Trudy's teaching style and her beautiful drawings will win over those yet to be introduced to her work.-Leisure Painter
