Whether you are a beginner or a more experienced artist you will be amazed at how quickly you will acquire the skills needed to produce beautiful paintings, and with the initial outlines for six stunning projects provided on high-quality watercolour paper, you can start creating amazing works of art straight away.

Written by professional artist and tutor Grahame Booth, this guide begins with notes on how to use the pre-printed watercolour paper to achieve the best results, and how to make copies of the outlines should you want to attempt the projects again.

Following this there is a short what you need’ section, enabling you to gather together the paints, brushes and basic equipment required before you start painting, and some brief guidance on general techniques such as how to hold the brush, how to add water to your paint and how to mix colour, plus how to frame and display your work.

The six stunning step-by-step projects that follow build in difficulty as you work through the book, introducing new techniques as they are used and incorporating numerous handy hints and tips from the author to help you progress on your painting journey.

The six sheets of artist-quality watercolour paper are pre-printed with the initial outline drawing for each of the projects, enabling you to start painting straight-away and giving you the best possible chance of achieving a successful painting.
