Ready to Paint: Orchids
The Ready to Paint series provides six tracings for readers to pull out and transfer on to watercolour paper. There is one for each of the five step-by-step demonstrations, plus a bonus tracing of the inspirational painting in the introduction section, and full instructions on how to transfer the images. People who want to learn to paint orchids without relying on their drawing skills have everything they need in this book. The orchid family is a diverse and widespread group of flowering plants with colourful and fragrant blooms. It is also one of the two largest families of flowering plants, and therefore there are a lot of beautiful flowers to take inspiration from. In this book, Ann Mortimer has chosen to paint a pink miltonia, backlit phalaenopsis, slipper orchid, miltonia orchid and an orchid in a bowl. The tracings and clear step-by-step photographs explain the painting process in great depth and make it easy for readers to reproduce all of these projects.
