With over 100 tips, this handy little book should improve your watercolour technique. I liked the tips for creating low cloud and mist on mountains, shadows, interpreting photos, foliage en masse and so much more. This is a good reference for any watercolour artist. Concentrating on landscape, there are tips for skies, trees, water, snow, figures, coastal scenes and buildings. There are examples of Geoff's finished paintings throughout the book. --KarenPlatt.co.uk
This is the latest of Geoff Kersey's practical painting books and is part of a developing series featuring respected artists who give their unique tips on painting. Initial training in graphic design clearly enhanced Geoff's astute understanding of perspective and proportion, while his natural expressiveness is apparent in his masterly methods of painting atmosphere and detail. Many original features are packed into this handy, pocket-sized book, including: ways of devising colour schemes; reducing clutter to produce stronger compositions; painting shadows; interpreting photographs; creating focal points; finding interesting vantage points; using wax-resist and painting buildings and weather effects. He describes and explains his palette, gives tips on colour mixing and demonstrates many of his own techniques, giving great insights into his personal approach to painting. From guidance about materials and application, to creating weather effects, skies, foliage or architectural details, all the instructions are practical and clearly described. The small, yet handy book is full of delightful sketches and paintings as well as a great deal of sensible, workable advice, making it a book that is suitable for both beginners and intermediate-level painters. --The Artist
