Learn specialised techniques from an expert artist. Create 22 floral paintings -- in both abstract and realistic styles -- using colour, shape, contrast, layering techniques and more to create full-canvas works of art.

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 colour explosions on large canvases in her intensely colourful 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 colour 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.

Ruth Alice Kosnick is a painter, sculptor, and printmaker who has been working as a freelance artist since 2004. She shares her painting techniques in classes, in her books, and in YouTube videos. She lives in Elmshorn, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.
