Ready to Paint in 30 Minutes: Street Scenes in Watercolour, Paperback Book

Ready to Paint in 30 Minutes: Street Scenes in Watercolour Paperback

Part of the Ready to Paint in 30 Minutes series


This complete beginner's guide to painting watercolour street scenes is ideal if you want to learn to paint but are short on time.

Each of the 32 quick and easy exercises takes no more than 30 minutes and will teach you how to create a new street scene element - such as doorways, buildings and people - or work an exciting technique - such as creating washes, mixing colours and playing with perspective.

The exercises are all worked at postcard size - ideal for a 6 x 4in (A6) watercolour pad, and actual-size tracings are included.

The book is broken down into eight chapters: tone, colour, perspective, the wash, edge control, brush strokes, adding detail and, finally, putting it all together - this last section contains 3 finished paintings that demonstrate how to integrate a combination of the elements into vibrant and inspiring street scenes; these complete paintings also have an accompanying actual-size tracing.
