The first in a series of seasonal watercolouring books based on artist Kristy Rice's cutting gardens, this book celebrates spring's profuse blossoms such as peonies, magnolias, pansies, and Eastern bluestar. Her easy-to-learn, joy-driven approach includes simple tutorials on how to use watercolour and where to find affordable materials. A stationery-industry tastemaker, Kristy believes that making art, regardless of skill level, has the power to reconnect us to each other and ourselves.
Touching brush to paper with water and colour releases an inexplicable calm that so many of us long for, and making art, even in short bursts, brings us back to ourselves by slowing time. With 25 detailed, yet whimsical illustrations, artists are invited to continue the journey begun in her first watercolouring book series, Painterly Days.
About the Author
Author of the popular Painterly Days series of watercolouring books, Kristy Rice wears many hats—entrepreneur, mama, celebrity invitation designer, stylist—but her first love is painting. As a six-year-old just wanting to make art, she would hide under the bed covers with her art supplies and a flashlight. It was clear from the start that Kristy would use a paintbrush to make her mark on the world.
Her obsession with paint and paper has evolved into an innovative brand, Momental Designs, which garners global attention from media, celebrities, and some of the world's most creative individuals and iconic brands. Along with a team of nine inspiring women, Kristy continues to invigorate the worlds of styling, stationery, design, and art licensing.
