Reviews from the One Tree Art Club community:

“…Her online tutorials are heaven for me. Not a virtuoso of drawing, I enjoy transferring/printing her free templates to then color. I feel I have advanced a lot in watercolor with them.
When I learned she was publishing a book on flower drawing, I wanted to explore it. Freedom in design is what best describes the 46 flower designs
As she playfully states, “Not anywhere near realistic drawing. “
I chose six, and sort of tried to reproduce them. They came out in my personal style!
Wow!
Then I became creative-did some on two colors, some on two values… The point is that since these flowers are whimsical, I have no fear of not doing it right…
What a wise way to teach to experiment with color!
Only one who is really a designer would have figured this out!
And, furthermore, being line drawings, I think they would be great for crafts. For painted placemats, to embroidered cushions, to painted glass, these designs are beautiful, unusual. and easy to use
I highly recommend this well-organized, clear, and simple method/book to encourage creativity.

Inspired creativity!
Imagine yourself finally having some quiet ‘me’ time in your favourite place for creating…no stress, your favourite music playing…and Cecilie Okada’s book to guide and inspire you!
This book is the perfect way to create. Each flower is drawn out for you, step by step. It’s much more relaxing than trying to follow a video and having to stop and start it to match your pace.
I like that each drawing is named after the flower that inspired it. I especially liked the flowers that I could recognize.
Paint, relax, create beauty!
