This is an utterly gorgeous book! Based on her tried and tested six-step approach Anna has designed her book to be a manual on technique, a source of inspiration and also as she describes; ‘the voice of kindness encouraging you to keep practising so that you too can enjoy painting to the full’ The beautiful full colour illustrations are incredibly detailed and with step-by-step instructions to help you create your own versions. We absolutely loved it! Highly Recommended!
