Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0891349898, Paperback)Delicately pretty florals adorn boxes, plates, a birdhouse, and a floorcloth in this easy-to-follow guide. Each of the 10 projects features a complete pattern template, a full-color photo of every step, and a color-keyed chart of all the required paints. The coverage of general techniques is quite brief, but the individual project how-tos explain the specifics of rendering asters, daisies, tulips, chamomile, thyme, apple blossoms, pansies, lilacs, poinsettias, holly, and fruits, plus foliage, branches, plaids, and wicker. Decorative painting naturally complements a country-style decor, and the items demonstrated here would make attractive accessories for such a setting. A glossary, source list, and small gallery of other painted objects round out the presentation. --Amy Handy

Traditional strokework blends with a realistic painting style for some of the 'freshest' looking fruits and flowers ever painted! Readers will learn how to paint these subjects stroke by stroke, then how to combine the strokes to create original designs to enhance virtually any decorative surface. The brushstroke lessons are incorporated into 12 projects so the reader can learn the techniques while creating beautiful finished pieces.
