Every project has clear photography and step-by-step instructions, as well as an outline at the back of the book that can be traced, if you need a little help when beginning your painting. 

If you need inspiration for what to do with your finished artwork, Olga has shared a stunning collection of her own examples that showcase the flowers beautifully from cards and wall art to fabrics that would make a beautiful robe for a loved one.
