All the essential skills for successful painting are beautifully illustrated and described by one of the inspirational watercolour painters working today. James Fletcher-Watson inspires all enthusiasts with his translucent washes, dramatic skies, atmospheric mountain scenes and skill in capturing the true spirit of a place. While focusing on individual elements, including skies, trees, country cottages, town houses, mountains, water, people and animals, each chapter offers advice on putting them all together in stunning landscapes and townscapes. Along with information on choosing brushes, paper and colours, there is a helpful section on composition. Paintings are used to demonstrate how to build up texture and detail; the subtle mixing of colours to produce shadows and reflections; and how to introduce distance and perspective into a scene. Moving from brooding hills and lakeland scenes to the charm of country lanes and the grandeur of Venice and Florence, the book illustrates exactly what you need to know to make a successful painting. This revision and reworking of Secrets of Watercolour takes the best of James Fletcher-Watson's earlier work and combines it with his masterly work of recent years.

Jake Winkle's loose, fresh and spontaneous style of painting is very popular. His paintings are full of light and movement and a key feature of his technique is that he doesn't work in the traditional way of light to dark but by placing the darks first. In Light and Movement in Watercolour, his first book, he demonstrates how to paint watercolours in a loose, direct way by step-by-step demonstrations and practical projects. Watercolours are often spoiled by a desire to be entirely truthful to the subject matter, which can lead to a painting that is overworked and tight. Jake's loose approach avoids those problems. He looks at subject simplification and shows how to focus on shapes rather than objects and, by painting what you see and not what you know, demonstrates how to capture the essence of the scene with freshness and clarity. The main topics in this book are: Understanding Watercolour; Building Confidence; What to Paint; Shapes, Tones and Colours; Dark to Light and Freshness and Clarity. Jake considers each topic in detail and shows the reader how to create paintings that glow with life, interest and spontaneity.

A paperback reissue Hazel Soan's classic practical art book. Hazel Soan is a well-known and popular artist and an enthusiastic and inspirational teacher. In The Essence of Watercolour Hazel shows how wonderfully versatile and beguiling the medium of watercolour is and how to get the most out of it. Hazel stresses how important it is to understand the characteristics of the medium in order to exploit it to the full. She encourages the reader to explore the properties of watercolour and to be unafraid of strength of colour and brushstroke. Hazel shows through demonstration and projects that tone is king in watercolour and illustrates how to paint light with the use of shade. Armed with this understanding she demonstrates that watercolour is not such an unforgiving medium after all: accidents and mistakes can be disguised, overridden and corrected. The Essence of Watercolour is a culmination of many years of Hazel's teaching and demonstrating, in which she offers inspirational insights into the secrets of watercolour painting and encourages artists to take their art to the next level.
