This gorgeous book will inspire you to play around with gouache and create lovely illustrations. It is a great opportunity to learn from Clare, to understand her choice of color, observe her brush strokes and see how she makes her magical works step by step.
Nina Stajner @ninastajner Illustrator

I can't think of a better artist than Clare when it comes to painting the beauty of the natural world. This is a glorious, thoughtful book full of wonderful projects to try. It is full of outstanding practical advice, from basic drawing of the elements to full instructions for layering gouache, as well as a particularly helpful colour mixing guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended for beginners and experienced artists alike.

I love this book and cannot recommend highly enough for a wide range or abilities.

Clare's style of writing is really friendly and easy to follow. There are a large variety of beautiful projects to chose from and a wealth of inspiration. The step by step guides are detailed and really well delivered. She takes you though the whole project from helping with the initial drawings which you can copy or make up your own, to precise instructions to help build up the layers of your painting, creating something wonderful.

I have really enjoyed using this book to developed my own painting and gain a greater understanding of what is achievable with gouche as a very versatile medium.

I have found that using this book has not just helped me created some lovely pieces directly from the book but gain skills and inspiration for other projects.

I cannot recommend this book enough.
