More About the Author

Terry Harrison grew up in Norfolk. His early art education was basic and he never dreamed that he would become an artist. At fifteen, Terry moved to Hampshire and was inspired by a brilliant art teacher. He took O and A levels in art, then won a place at Farnham Art School at the age of sixteen. He became a graphic artist, but continued to paint in his spare time. In 1984 Terry gave up his job to paint full time. He demonstrates to artists' groups and teaches on painting holidays. He has also developed a range of his own brushes and paints. He is the author of many best selling books on painting with acrylics and watercolours. Terry now lives in the Cotswolds.

About the Author

Terry Harrison became interested in art early on, attending Art School at the age of sixteen. His studies led to a career in graphics, then he became an illustrator, developing his own painting style and perfecting his techniques during evenings and weekends. Demand grew for his paintings and he soon gave up his 'day job' to paint full time. Now he is kept constantly busy with a full schedule of exhibitions, private commissions, demonstrations and painting holidays. His fine art prints are sold in shops and galleries everywhere and he has recently opened a successful art gallery where he displays and sells his paintings. Terry is an energetic and prolific painter and his regular rebookings for demonstrations reflect an enthusiastic response to his educational and entertaining style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watercolour trees -made easy 27 Nov 2005
This is a superb book for the beginner. Terry takes you through equipment, paper and paints in a clear manner, with colour photographs throughout.
The instruction on painting is done in clear easy steps, again photographed at each stage. I am a complete novice and have been able to produce excellent results.
I enjoyed the book so much I have booked to go on one of Terry's all-day courses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terry Harrison's Watercolour Trees, Revdave 25 Dec 2011
By revdave
I cannot praise this book too highly. Being a recent newcomer to watercolour painting I looked at a lot of books before settling on this one. The reason why I chose it was because Terry Harrison gives 'tips & wrinkles' in a very easy to understand manner; he seems to give advice without trying to enforce a style upon the novice, thus alowing one to develop one's own way of painting but with the added knowledge of an experienced professional's hints to help.
It may not tell the seasoned painter anything new, but I can thoroughly recommend it to those, like me, coming to watercolurs for the first time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but.... 9 May 2009
By Merlin
Good book, part of a series by Terry Harrison, but based on HIS special brushes and HIS paint mixes. Presumably one can replicate the techniques with a standard set of brushes and paints, but the easiest way (but probably not the cheapest) is to rush out and buy his set of brushes and paints. I managed to find 4 books bundled at a bargain price, but wouldn't have been too happy to buy at full price then find out I could be spending even more on extra brushes
