For beginner and experienced painters who want to try their hand at painting flowers with acrylics. Ruth Alice Kosnick teaches readers how to transform the beauty of nature into true color explosions on large canvases in her intensely colorful and dynamic style. Her vibrant painting style shifts between marked representationalism and abstract images. The vivacity and abundance of her floral motifs are accentuated by a loose style of painting. Intended imperfections combined with unusual acrylic mixing techniques provide inspiration for the free use of color and shape. Through the step-by-step instructions, Kosnick shares her knowledge of composition and her innovative techniques. She teaches readers how to paint 22 different flowers--roses, tulips, dandelions, sunflowers, delphiniums, snapdragons, and many more. By applying Kosnick's techniques, readers can make compositions of flowers and petals an emotional and sensual experience.
