Product Description

Review

A long awaited sequel to Terry's previous Brush with Watercolour. Terry legions of fans will be pleased to find another book from him in his usual easy to follow style. He produces his own range of brushes and this book shows how to get the best out of each individual one - thus the section on the Wizard brush shows us how to use it to create paint effects such as wood grain, silver birch bark and dog hair. These can be replaced with others you have already that may be similar ( especially if you are happy to take the scissors to them - something I often do with ruinedA" brushes such as those that have worn the point out. If you then like the effect you can then replace with one of Terry's special types when funds permit. He shows things we need to know like - how to place the brush exactly, how much paint to have on the brush - things less experienced students need to know but are often forgotten by artist tutors for whom this is second nature. The second half of the book coves the more usual techniques used in watercolour painting and is followed by six in depth step by step demonstrations using these techniques and his range of brushes. To get the best from this book you really need to have some of Terry's brushes, or be confident enough to adapt your own. This is another excellent beginners watercolour landscape book from Terry to take the fear away from applying paint to paper that some would be artist have.-Jeanniezelos.com A long awaited follow-up to Terry Harrison's Brush with Watercolour, this book focuses on Terry's own range of brushes, which he has designed to help painters create the best effects they can with the minimum amount of effort. Terry has also designed a range of 'three greens' - specially mixed greens to save you having to do it! The book opens with a description of the brushes and their uses, followed by a list of the materials you will need to get started, and Terry's palette of colours. Descriptions of how to use each brush to best effect with step-by-step examples show exactly how to achieve the desired effect and build up confidence with painting features in the landscape. The 'Stippler px' for example is specially designed for painting trees and foliage. Step-by-step examples show how to paint a simple tree using the brush, focusing on summer foliage, scraping out, painting tree trunks, stones and grasses. The section closes with a painting by Terry that combines all the techniques described using each particular brush. A chapter on basic watercolour techniques - wet into wet, dry brushwork, masking fluid, etc. is followed by the demonstrations - six in total. Each demonstration comprises a list of materials followed by up to 31 stages. Terry is a popular teacher who understands the problems many amateur painters face. This book will be a welcome addition to any watercolourist's Christmas list.-Leisure Painter --Leisure Painter

Format: Paperback
Firstly I want to say I actually like Terry Harrison's books and approach but if you are a beginner looking for a book to teach you watercolour painting then this is not the book for you. What this book actually does is to teach you how to use Terry's own range of brushes and paints, if you don't have these then this book is all but useless to a beginner.

His brushes make it easy to do certain things like foliage effects but the book does not teach to paint without these brushes. All through the book it says use my sunlit green or midnight green etc and does not tell you how to mix these colours if you do not have them. Also if you are a beginner it misses out so many of the basics such as what do you support the paper, mixing colours etc etc.

There are some nice pictures in the book.... and there are also some really horrible exercise pictures, for example the wave.

If you already own the first volume of A Brush with Watercolour I would suggest that there is very little new in it to make the purchase worthwhile.... the first 50 or so pages just show you how to use his brushes very similar to volume 1.

If you have his brushes and want to paint like Terry then this is the book for you. If you are total beginner then look elsewhere.

Format: Paperback
Terry has found a formula that works, but maybe this is being pushed a step too far. There is some repetition here and a feeling that the only reason for writing this was to push his brushes. Also Terry recommends buying lots of colours. I am in favour of mixing colours myself. The confident painter will be able to ignore his advice and use their own brushes and paints. Yet, I do not feel this book is aimed at the confident painter but the beginner. More effects, more techniques, nicely illustrated and a good balance of examples and demonstrations. careful and safe. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

Painting Watercolour Landscapes the Easy Way: Brush with Watercolour 2
I am a great fan of Terry Harrison but I do feel that in part anyway that there is some repetition in the text to his original book 1.
For obvious reasons, he is explaining how to use his own brushes, so if this book is purchased one would think that Terry's brushes will need to be purchased as well.
Apart from that,the book is very colourful and informative.

Really excellent book, large size, so you can see the details in the pictures without having to squint. Good info on brushes, a bit of colour mixing advice, techniques and some tips such as that Terry uses soap on his brushes before using masking fluid, so that the fluid does not stick to the brush. Not tried this yet, so do not know if it works. I think this is a book I like owning just to look at the lovely pictures to get ideas or copy them. There are a few projects to follow as well.

I really enjoyed the illustrations. It is a very good book. Terry Harrison is a brilliant artist. It is a must for anyone, who doesn't have the time to attend Watercolour classes.
