About the Author

About Wendy Tait

Wendy Tait gave demonstrations and taught classes to art clubs and societies. Although she no longer teaches, she remains as busy as ever, enjoying writing and illustrating books and painting in several different media. 


A Good Age

June 08

People often want to take up painting when they retire and have more time. Others start sooner, once their kids are grown and in school. The drawing part of painting can be hard for beginners enough of an obstacle so they give up or never get past painting by numbers.

My friends who paint have always had a natural ability. They drew as children. I dont have that at all. Now two new books promise to make watercolor painting easier for beginners by following what I call an old-but-new approach.

The Ready to Paint series from Search Press in England is designed so that novice painters can pick up a brush and create appealing paintings with easy-to-follow tracings. The tracings can be reused. The idea is that you gain confidence as your hand-eye coordination is trained, by following the tracings, while you have some pleasing results to motivate you to keep trying.

Watercolour Flowers by Wendy Tait has nine reusable tracings to pull out. Watercolour Landscapes by Terry Harrison has six reusable tracings to pull out. Both are to be published in June.

The artists explain how to compose a painting with simple instructions and tips. Both Tait and Harrison are authors as well as artists.
