Tutorial- Quarto Publishing


I have been invited to do two painting-tutorials of watercolors of flowers.

The first tutorial has been finished and sent to London for the book.

Here is the second tutorial of a 'crown imperial'. I will finish it today ... and complete the text that goes with it.

Both books will be published by Quarto Publishing, London, England.

They will be listed on Amazon.

There is another book -- DIFFERENT STROKES, which includes my work -- already available.

Excellent, this flower always appeals to me as its so anti-flower :) Its more like a piece of architecture.

Wonderful to be asked to produce tutorials for this book. I'll have to check out the previous book.

Now I know why I waited and did not purchase your earlier books, so that I can go to Amazon and buy these works published in London. Well done for the commissions, your work truly deserves such a boost.

I don't think I've ever seen this flower: it's magnificent, s is your painting. I love the way the paint runs to the edges of the petals and makes them darker--it's a great effect.
I'll look for your books too!
