A comprehensive guide to watercolour painting that draws on the expertise of seven well-loved artists and includes a wide variety of techniques and styles. 

This is a practical and comprehensive guide for all watercolour enthusiasts, from the beginner who wishes to explore this popular painting medium to the experienced artist looking for inspiration and ideas. Starting with advice on materials, colour and composition, the book goes on to describe basic and more advanced techniques and the wonderful effects they can produce. Fourteen easy-to-follow, step-by-step demonstrations show the reader how to paint skies, trees, water, buildings and flowers, and each section is accompanied by a selection of inspirational paintings by the seven featured artists, in a rich variety of styles.

Originally published as 'Working with Watercolour', this book uses material from the 'Leisure Arts' series.
