Book Description

This comprehensive guide to painting landscapes in watercolour features the expert tuition of six renowned watercolour artists. It covers all aspects of painting, from materials and techniques through to planning a painting, sketching and perspective. Learn the techniques of wet into wet, spattering, dry brushing, lifting out and using salt to create texture and interest, and follow the step-by-step demonstrations to create realistic water, skies, reflections and buildings, as well as mood and atmosphere. With nine beautiful projects to try, and numerous examples of the authors' work to inspire you, this is the ideal introduction to landscape painting for artists of all abilities.

This book includes material previously published in the highly successful Step-by-Step Leisure Arts series and the Watercolour Tips and Techniques series.

This new compilation offers a comprehensive guide to painting landscapes in watercolour, showing the results achievable with very different painting styles. There is information on materials, colour mixing, techniques including spattering and dry brush, sketching, composition, perspective and tone. Eleven step-by-step demonstrations put all this information into practice.

This is another of Search Presss bind-ups of previous material and Im still not sure whether Ive reviewed it before or not or maybe in a slightly different guise. Theyve got very good at this latterly and, rather than obvious joins where one book ends and another begins, the whole thing is now seamless. The material may not be new, but its still sound and the reproduction is as fresh as it ever was, so this isnt resurrecting a corpse but bringing excellent material to a potential new audience at a very affordable price. As well as some technical pieces on things like perspective and composition, demonstrations from popular authors cover trees, water, snow, buildings and so on (and on). If you have other books by these authors, youd need to check for duplication but, equally, theres so much here, you probably wont be getting too much cross-over. If you only have a small library and are on a budget into the bargain, you could do a great deal worse than invest in this.
