More About the Author

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.

Product Description

Review

Search Press have been on to a winner with their award-winning Ready To Paint series, and now here is a compendium volume of pictures to please budding artists. For anybody reading this who wonders what all the fuss is about this new concept allows tyro artists to practice their painting skills without the need to be able to draw. Each book contains several pull-out tracings to transfer to paper and all the illustrated instructions to produce some very fine work indeed. The fourteen projects in here are taken from three earlier books, but for anybody new to wtercolor painting and wanting a good selection of different pictures to tackle then this bigger book is good value. You would need to want to paint landscapes, as that is what you will find in here. Choose between views across fields, of woods (my favorite is the bluebell wood), rivers, mountains, sea views and snow scenes. As usual each project contains a full list of all the types of brush, named paints and other materials you need and there are a large number of easy stages. I particularly like the way you can see what the painting looks like at each stage, and each caption is short and to the point. Each picture gives the person painting it a chance to learn new skills, from getting clouds right to painting snow, showing a myriad of flowers or getting to grips with masking fluid. It truly is a pretty foolproof way of learning to paint and I wish it had been around when I was learning. I can imagine this book making an excellent gift for the would-be artist on many present lists. --Myshelf.com

Traditional landscapes including a poppy field, a doorway and a village in the snow by Terry Harrison, trees and woodlands by Geoff Kersey, and hills and mountains by Arnold Lowrey. We know that many of you have followed Terry Harrison's career through nationwide exhibitions and have taken up painting as a pastime. Here's a great book of renowned watercolour artists showing how to paint landscapes, trees, woodlands, hills and mountains. Outlines are provided for the 14 step-by-step projects so readers can bypass the drawing and get straight on to painting. --Machine Knitting Monthly

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 re-bookings for demonstrations reflect an enthusiastic response to his educational and entertaining style. Geoff Kersey is an experienced watercolourist and is much in demand as a teacher and demonstrator. He lives and works in Derbyshire where he has a studio, and he exhibits extensively. He has made two watercolour videos and contributes to various art publications. Arnold Lowrey has been painting in a variety of media for over twenty-five years. His motivation has been the use of light in painting, but he now experiments more with colour and texture. His seascapes are especially vibrant and full of movement. Arnold also likes painting still life, landscapes, portraits and abstracts. He exhibits his paintings in Wales and London. Arnold holds regular weekend workshops and weekly painting courses, residential watercolour courses and demonstrations for Art Societies. he is also a painting demonstrator for several art material suppliers.

Format: Paperback
I am justing starting out with watercolours and am using this book as a learning guide. I have found the traceable compositions straightforward to use and clear instructions are given on mixing and applying the various colours, which makes possible really good results from the start. As there are three different artists featured, I intend to follow their guides and thereby eventually develop my own style. I am really impressed with this book and can highly recommend it to people who want to learn and improve.

Great value for money book, great images, ideal for those who either can't or don't want to draw but more importantly they tell you the colours to mix and the brush methods to use. Really helps improve your watercolour skills

I found this book an excellent way of learning new techniques and gaining confidence in colour mixing without the difficult stage of drawing the scene first. I did find the outlines pretty large though, about A3, which was a lot bigger than I wanted to paint but I was easily able to shrink them down to A4 using a photocopier. Step by step instructions were very helpful and I was able to produce some quite good paintings in a very enjoyable way using this book. It's great value, being a collection of three other titles, and by different artists so you get to learn about different styles. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about how to paint landscapes but isn't confident about the drawing stage.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very good book, the instructions are very clear, and easy to understand and the actual paintings are very good..BUT and it is a BIG but....the tracings are enormous, you would need at the very least A3 paper, which costs a second mortgage, though you could use a cheap drawing book, then if happy with the result, then repaint on watercolour paper, this I always do if I want to get the picture right. So I must be honest, I was very disappointed, some one should tell the publishers to downsize the tracings to A4, we would use less paper, and more to the point less expensive paint, it seems that very few of these books use A4 tracing paper. I am lucky, I can copy from their original paintings from the book, but sadly very many amateur learners will be very disappointed if they buy this book.

Great investment, can be used again and again, helps while I practice my drawing skills, plus the original artists choice of colours helps you to understand how to mix paints.
