Charles Reid is one of watercolor's best-loved teachers, a master painter whose signature style captures bright floral still-lifes with a loose spontaneity that adds immeasurably to the whole composition.

Portraying the glory of nature in a highly individual way is the ultimate challenge for all painters, and with this book, Charles Reid shares with you the instruction and advice you need to paint fruits, vegetables and flowers that glow.

Special "assignments" and step-by-step demonstrations help you master techniques for superior brushwork, edge control, and composition. You'll learn to paint wild daffodils, roses, mums, sunflowers, lilacs, tomatoes, avocados, oranges, strawberries, jars, coffeepots, wine bottles and more.

Reid also shows you how to paint flowers in any environment, from the tranquility of a warm kitchen to a windswept beach in Bermuda. You'll create a garden of floral glories--compositions that burst with light, color and realism.

Best of all, as your proficiency for capturing the essence of flowers builds, so too will your personal style. Soon your paintings will depict the beauty of nature in your own individual fashion.

Let Charles Reid show you how to create beautiful watercolor florals from start to finish!
