For over 40 years Judy Cuppaidge travelled the Pacific to paint rare, beautiful and exotic flowers before the oblivion of civilisation. In this book, 32 of her exquisitely painted flowers are lovingly depicted together with their stories of discovery, chance and mischance from her travel diaries, delightfully told in her own inimitable style. Each painting is the productive of intensive work and painstaking effort, sometimes uniquely layering five applications of water colouring to obtain just the right nuance and shade.
