Lessons in Flower Painting - James Andrews 1835 - Charles Tilt, London - First Edition In submitting these "Lessons in Flower painting" to the public, I beg to remark, that it has been my object to render them as plain and practical as possible. There are few accomplishments more graceful, more innocent in their tendency, and more pleasing, than the art of painting Flowers after nature.

Rare step by step instructional for painting flowers by the renowned Victorian botanical artist James Andrews, with 24 lithographic plates, 12 of which are exquisitely hand-coloured

The book begins with black and white outlined sketches of foliage followed by the same plate hand coloured with recommended colour palettes, this is repeated and then the artist is then shown a plate of black and white flower sketches, followed by the same plate now exquisitely hand coloured together with recommended colour palette, the remaining plates differ in that they focus on individual flowering plants and gatherings of various flowers, again on a black and white outline paired by hand-coloured plate without the colour palettes shown.

The individual plants are - Wild Hyacinth, Fuschia, Convolvulus (Morning Glory), Canterbury Bell, Geranium, Auricula, and Moss Rose.
