Written by professional artist, Charles Evans, this guide begins with notes on how to use the pre-printed watercolour paper to achieve the best results, and how to make copies of the outlines should you want to attempt the projects again. Following this there is a short 'what you need' section, enabling you to gather together the paints, brushes and basic equipment required to start painting, and some brief guidance on general techniques such as how to hold the brush, how to add water to your paint and how to mix the colours, plus how to capture reflections on the water, and shadows on the land. The six 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 expert artist and instructor Charles Evans, to help you progress on your painting journey.
The six sheets of watercolour paper are pre-printed with the initial outline drawing for each of the projects, enabling you to start painting straight away and giving you the best possible chance of achieving a successful painting.
