Product Description

Review

This is the first title in a new series from Search Press and you'd have to say that the basic premise is a good one. As Terry explains in his introduction, it's all too easy to find yourself with a pile of paper, a box of all the colours and every brush you might ever need and to be completely stuck for ideas. As a photographic magazine once responded to someone who listed a suitcase full of equipment and asked what else he needed to take really great pictures, "How about a couple of rolls of film?" It's not hard to see how this book grew out of the Ready to Paint series and, if it lives up to its manifesto, it's certainly the next logical step. There are outlines, but they're not tracings. What you don't get are any step-by-step demonstrations and that's something to celebrate. These are alright in their place, but they can get a bit pedestrian and sometimes you just think, "enough". Instead, each painting gets just a single spread, with the finished result on the right and some details pulled out on the left, with notes about the subject and explanations of the most important elements. There's also list of the colours used so that you can practise working with a simplified palette and developing your mixing skills.-Artbookreview.net --Artbookreview.net

About the Author

Terry Harrison grew up in Norfolk. His earlly 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.

Format: Paperback
Part of the What to Paint series, this book assumes that you know the basics and no longer need the step by step instruction provided by the Ready to Paint series by the same publisher. Here Terry provides 24 handsome landscape scenes that are varied and attractive. You can try out your painting skills without the need to draw as the outlines are provided for your use. For those who freeze on seeing a sheet of blank paper, this series is wonderful. It's another step to becoming an independent artist. You get the outline, the palette and brief instructions on how the painting was painted as well as seeing the finished project. This book is aimed at improving artists and those who don't have any ideas what they want to paint. I really liked this book. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

I have been using the ready to paint tracing books to improve my painting and this book is the next stage. The outlines are just that - outlines and a lot of the detail is omitted. Also the descriptive / instructions are very scanty so you're almost on your own. A bit like starting big school from nursery I should imagine! However, the previous fully traced paintings should have laid the groundwork so off we go. I write this having just filed my first attempt in the round file under my painting table :-( but after I have had a lie down and a cry I shall have another go

All books by this author are very informative with clear instructions. If you want to paint but are struggling for a subject then this book is a good start.

As with all Terry Harrison books, easy to follow and paint and a great inspiration, I would recommend them to anyone interested in or starting out in watercolour painting and looking or thinking what shall I paint.

As usual with Terry Harrison's books, this was excellent, with lovely pictures, painting tips, and clear explanations accompanying each painting. I also found the variety of paintings very helpful, not forgetting the outlines for tracing at the back.

I have just finished the snowy barn & can't wait to start my next project. I think following Terry's steps will lead me on to painting from my own photos. He has some great tips & works with a small group of paints.

Difficult book for the beginner but the book does offer scope, would have liked more instruction. Good range of outlines and for the price good value.
