Priscilla Hauser's Flower PortraitsBook - 2004
Priscilla Hauser, the “First Lady of Decorative Painting,” offers a bouquet of flower designs sure to please anyone who enjoys putting brush to paper. Daffodils, poppies, cabbage roses, wisteria: they all bloom beautifully on canvas, with the help of worksheets that show each portion of the flower as it’s painted. Instructions cover using a round or liner brush; making every single brush stroke, from commas to curlicues; choosing a palette; floating (flowing color on a surface); and easy blending. Pick one of the 12 flower projects, including tulips, lilies, geraniums, daisies, and sunflowers. Attractive mottled backgrounds enhance the focus on each flower portrait, and look wonderful on the finished and framed picture. With more than 25 books to her credit, Priscilla Hauser has become the expert teacher on decorative painting techniques. She’s the founder of the National Society of Tole and Decorative Painting, spokeswoman for FolkArt® paints, and a world-renowned instructor.
