Appealing to amateur artists, decorators, and designers alike, each project in this collection of botanical still life by Charles Rennie Mackintosh captures the delicate balance and grace of his finest paintings. A principal figure of Art Nouveau design, Mackintosh spent many years studying the color and form of flowers, resulting in such signature works as Anemones (1916), Larkspur (1914), and Anemone & Pasque (1915), each included here and accompanied by Fiona Peart’s reassuring step-by-step instructions. Adding to the three Mackintosh orignals are two works of creative interpretation by the author herself, with instruction on how artists can apply the Art Nouveau style and pallet to their own original works. Each project is accompanied by pull-out tracing paper that easily transfers each still life onto watercolor paper artists need only a soft graphite pencil and a rubbing tool to achieve the transfers eliminating the time and trial of freehand drawing. Additional chapters include a brief biography of the artist, as well as a materials guide for buying paint, paper, and brushes.
