Donna Dewberry is the most successful decorative painter ever. She has done ten books for North Light since 1998. She is contracted through 2007 with PBS stations nationwide for her program One-Stroke Painting with Donna Dewberry and is also a biweekly presenter on the Home Shopping Network and America's Store. Her designs are licensed for home decor fabrics, wallpapers, quilts, embroidery, etc.From Booklist:
Decorative furniture, in Dewberry's viewpoint, means painting in the one- (or a few-) brushstroke technique--not the sponging, ragging, and stenciling that Jocasta Innes articulated. In fact, the entire how-to and project orientation here focuses on painting; there's nothing about preparation, stripping, and other preliminary methods needed for a clean, ready-to-decorate surface. Yet for fanciers of this traditional technique, the sky is virtually the limit of possibilities--10 projects show, from background to final varnish, the best effects of applying colorful flowers and fauna and displaying blue-and-white china atop chests of drawers, tables, trunks, and screens. Great step-by-step photographs help master this art. Resources appended. Barbara Jacobs
