Book Description

One of the best art teachers in the world teaches you how to get to grips with watercolour landscapes in an afternoon. Hazel Soan is a hugely successful painter in her own right but also an outstanding teacher and author of art books, which have introduced the wonders of art to a generation of amateur artists.

In this book she reveals the basics of watercolour landscapes that can get any beginner started with lots of simple exercises and step-by-step demonstrations. That lifelong ambition to paint somewhere that is important to you is possible.

Chapter 1 covers Creating Space, including depth and distance, 'game of tones', perspective, warm and cool colours, background, middle ground and foreground. Chapter 2 is Composition and Focus with guidance on inspiration, design, focus, leading lines, and figures in the landscape. Describing Light is Chapter 3 with techniques on sources of light, angle of light, light and shadows, and seasons. Chapter 4 is Colours of the Landscape, mixing watercolours, transparent and opaque, choosing colours, cool or warm blue, mixing greens, warm reds and yellows. Watercolour Painting Techniques in Chapter 5 include painting 'en plein air', brushwork, wet on dry, wet into wet etc., laying a wash and creating texture. She also covers specific landscape themes skies, foliage, forests, fields, grasses, gardens, rivers and lakes, mountains, seascapes, wilderness, desert, urban landscapes, panoramas and sunsets.
