'If there was ever a book you’d been eagerly awaiting, this is it. Subtitled a lifetime of painting techniques, this absolutely lives up to expectations and won’t disappoint.' Artbookreview.net

An invaluable source of tips and techniques based on a life-time of painting.

Terry Harrison has been an artist since he was 16 years old, and during his life has built a formidable reputation as an artist, tutor and author. This comprehensive and accessible book brings together all he has learnt during his lifetime and provides over 170 tips, techniques and trade secrets to help the reader improve their watercolour painting. Drawing on material from his best-selling 'Terry's Top Tips for Watercolour Artists' (2008) and 'Painting Water in Watercolour' (2013), Terry begins with what materials to buy, using photographs, colour and techniques, and ends with numerous tips on painting a variety of subjects such as skies, distance, mountains, beaches and boats. Terry has an easy, accessible style that artists of all abilities will find easy to understand, making this book an invaluable resource that the reader will return to again and again.
