"In Everyday Watercolor Flowers, Jenna takes you on an incredible, colorful journey, guiding you step by step through the process of painting flowers. This is a fantastic book for anybody with an interest in watercolor painting, whether they be honing their botanical skills or picking up a brush for the very first time." - Johanna Basford, illustrator and author of Secrete Garden and World of Flowers
"Beautifully accessible, warm, and inspiring, Everyday Watercolor Flowers is a book you'll want to dive right into, paintbrush in hand. Jenna's color-theory thought process, combined with her unique breakdown of flowers into shapes, helps to peel back the layers of her beautiful work and invite us all in." - Nicole Miyuki Santo, artist and author of By Hand: The Art of Modern Lettering
"I’ve been following talented watercolor artist Jenna Rainey for years, so when I found out her second book was going to be focused on florals, I knew it would be right up my alley. Jenna thoroughly breaks down the watercolor technique into easy-to-absorb sections covering tools, technique, sketching, color palettes and tones, and floral anatomy before moving into various flower specimens broken down by shape. Not only is the content informative for any artist, but the book is also chock-full of Jenna’s stunning watercolor. A feast for both the eyes and aspiring watercolor artists' hands." - Laura Hooper, owner and creative director, Laura Hooper Calligraphy
