Natural Watercolours : Painting from Nature Made Easy, Paperback Book

Natural Watercolours : Painting from Nature Made Easy Paperback


Strating out with simple studies of leaves, fruit and flowers, the author looks at the materials and basic techniques needed for natural watercolour painting, and suggests some simple exercises for creating realistic form and effective composition.

He moves on to demonstrate how to paint a wide range of natural subjects by cleverly breaking them down into their substructures, then illustrating the gradual development of the image so you both understand and see exactly how the finished watercolour has been built up.

With fully annotated sketches, working illustrations and step-by-step demonstrations he explores all kinds of indoor and outdoor subjects.

Detailed information on special techniques and suitable palettes is also provided throughout.
