Book Description

Use the full-size traceable outlines and the clear step-by-step instructions to create 6 dynamic coastal landscape paintings, and learn the key skills you need to become an accomplished artist.

Whether a beginner or more experienced artist you’ll be amazed at how quickly you will acquire the skills needed to produce beautiful paintings.

Written by professional artist Charles Evans, this guide begins with a short yet indispensable ‘what you need’ section, and some brief guidance on general techniques such as how to mix your watercolours, how to make the most of your palette, and how to enhance your watercolours with the addition of gouache.

The 6 stunning step-by-step projects that follow build in difficulty as you work through the book, introducing new techniques as they are used and incorporating numerous handy hints and tips from the author to help you progress on your painting journey.

The outlines for each of the six projects appear at the end of the book for you to trace, transfer and customize so you can start to paint impressive coastal scenes straight away.

'This series from Search Press is simply brilliant and brilliantly simple. Take one look and you'll get it immediately. I just love them.' Henry Malt, Paint Magazine

Previously published as The Paint Pad Artist: Coastal Landscapes (9781782217466), this inspiring book has been reimagined as part of the Anyone Can Paint series.
