Watercolour Painting This is the complete practical introduction to watercolour painting for beginners. It begins with a look at the basic equipment needed to get started, and presents all of the techniques that make up the core set of skills for the watercolour painter. Each technique is introduced as a step-by-step sequence that enables the reader to practise the brush stroke, and is accompanied by a short practice exercise to allow even complete novices to produce watercolour studies from the outset. Written by two highly accomplished watercolour artists, the book explains the fundamental theories of art, such as understanding colour and tone, scale and perspective, and composition, and is packed full of valuable hints and tips. The step-by-step exercises are designed to build the skills gradually, from understanding tone and colour through to texture techniques such as spattering, dry brush and sgraffito. Clearly written and beautifully illustrated with easy-to-follow projects that allow the skills to be put into practice as they are learned, this is an essential practical manual for all beginners to the highly rewarding medium of watercolour.
