An inspirational and practical art manual, packed with step-by-step projects. Artist Ann Blockley is renowned for her innovative approach to watercolour painting. Her highly anticipated new book provides a series of workshops demonstrating how to push the boundaries of watercolour, using key techniques to develop your own work and take your paintings to the next level. Ann's easy-to-follow, step-by-step projects demonstrate how some of her most dramatic paintings are created. She describes in detail some of the key techniques used and how you can experiment with alternative methods to create your own interpretations. Finally, her beautiful and inspirational artworks demonstrate how different interpretations of a subject might take an unexpected or unusual direction, and how to make the most of these opportunities. The book moves, with progressively challenging projects, from loose wildflower meadows, textured woodland and rustic rambling walls to atmospheric or semi-abstract landscape corners, all rendered in Ann’s adventurous signature style. Loose, expressive mark-making and unusual techniques include combining water-based paint and ink with granulation medium for dramatic texture, drawing with twigs, using gesso and collage to create unique effects; manipulating paint with materials such as plastic wrap (clingfilm); developing printed marks made using found materials. Following the huge demand for more practical guidance in experimental painting, the book provides plenty of techniques and instruction. Ann’s personal commentary also gives a unique insight into the mind of the artist – ways of looking at your subject, how to explore and experiment – to unlock the potential of your watercolour painting.

John Blockley was one of Britain’s most outstanding watercolour and pastel painters of the late 20th century, and has exhibited at the Royal Academy. Self-taught, he produced work that has always been experimental and progressive. His highly textured style was well ahead of his time and still hugely influential now. The quality of his work is even more staggering given that he never trained at any art college, and spent most of his working life as an engineer. He only started painting full time at the age of 52. His obsession for drawing and painting, even while a successful engineer, was driven by his search for the essence of his subjects. The power of his paintings reveal that passion. This beautiful retrospective of his work, including drawings, watercolours, pastels and also acrylics, brings together the best of his work. The illuminating commentary on his work is from his daughter, Ann Blockley, who is also an acclaimed painter in her own right. She understands completely where John Blockley was coming from in his artistic vision and also explains the techniques he used. Breaking with so many traditions in watercolour painting in the 1960s, John was and is an influential figure in the art world. John said, ‘In order to paint the terrain as I see it – blotched, mottled, grainy – I must experiment’. These experimentations are still of huge value to painters today. This book is perfect for any painter who enjoys John’s work but also for all the many, many fans of his work.

In April 1805 the newly created Society of Painters in Water Colours, now known as the Royal Watercolour Society, held its first exhibition. After the Royal Academy, the RWS is the oldest artists' exhibiting society in Britain. Its early years saw the rise to prominence of watercolour painting, a golden age of British art and a medium in which Britain produced artists of remarkable genius. This book celebrates the Society's bicentenary by bringing together the work of its founders, Joshua Cristall, John Varley, W.S. Gilpin, W.H. Pyne and W.F. Wells. It also surveys the period from 1800 to 1851 in detail and illustrates the work of the major painters of the time--Thomas Girtin, J.M. Turner, Francis Towne, Peter de Wint, A.V. Copley Fielding, John Linnell, John Sell Cotman and many others.

British artists from Hollar to Ruskin excelled in the art of the watercolour. In its delicate strength they found the perfect medium in which to express a growing response to Nature and their environment. Artists such as Sandby, Girtin, Turner, and Cotman travelled in search of romantic landscapes, picturesque ruins and dramatic urban skylines, visiting places as diverse as the Yorkshire moors, Norwich, Venice and Rome. Over 140 of their finest watercolours are reproduced here in full colour and discussed in detailed notes. In the introduction Lindsay Stainton explores the development of the relationship between Nature and Art and shows how patrons and the public could influence the life and work of an artist during this golden age of British painting. -- Book cover.
