Have you always admired the Zhostovo style, but never dared attempt it yourself? Well, here's the book you've been waiting for! This complete, step-by-step guide will help you master the traditional Russian style of decorative painting . . . its graceful brushstrokes, brightly colored flowers, luminous dark backgrounds, and those gorgeous, ornate gold borders.

Clear photos lead you through each step, from loading the brush to building each flower brushstroke by brushstroke. You'll learn all about brush placement, color changes, direction, shapes, relationships, and the rhythm and movement created by flowing brushstrokes ... even how to create your own floral designs! Eleven magnificent projects feature floral, fruit and bird motifs--including two basic projects to get you started and two advanced projects to inspire you to develop your Zhostovo skills.
