Vidhi Khandelwal takes readers step-by-step through the process she uses to create her beautiful signature floral illustrations. Brighter and more vibrant than watercolours, gouache is easy to work with, especially for beginners, and provides a quick, dramatic result. Vidhi teaches readers to make the most of these richly pigmented paints, showing them how to create highlights, shadows and all the details in between.

Vidhi helps readers step away from the screen and incorporate nature and creativity into busy everyday life. She covers popular blooms such as peonies, daisies, lavender and foxgloves, as well as trendy succulents and colourful tropical botanicals. Each project features a sketch on high-quality art paper, making it easy for readers to dive right in and practice their painting skills. Vidhi also includes a primer on the hugely popular art of floral lettering, so readers can use their skills to incorporate flower imagery into letters and words for cards, decor and more.

This book will contain 20 projects and step-by-step illustrations.
