Product Description

Review

This is a lovely little book providing inspiration and guidance for watercolour artists. It is part of a new series of Art Handbooks from the publisher. William shows how to capture the unique qualities of watercolour. There are techniques, step by step paintings and finished paintings to urge you to try this wonderful medium.-Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts The size of the book is A5, (my favourite size) and inspiring to flick through. The materials needed page is relatively near the front of the book, so you can get your supplies together quite quickly before seeing all of the inspiring projects that you will want to get started with as soon as possible. I like how the handbook is full of very helpful information, such as, (the using colour section) it shows for example there are different types of blue, not just one blue, but many. 4 are shown in the book Winsor blue, French Ultra marine, Cerulean, and cobalt. The mixing colour page shows you a painting, and what colours were used for each area, this for me, is very helpful. Then the book moves onto introducing you to basic techniques, graduated washes, overlaid glazing, dry brush work and much more. The first project is all about understanding tone. Using just one colour, (Sepia) is the colour used in the book, but you could use any one colour you have. Darker colours work better though. William Newton even reminds you to fix your paper to a painting board before starting your project, this is useful for me, as I am always too eager to get started. It is a lovely simple project to get you started and one that you will have a lot of fun experimenting with different (one) colours, the same picture using different (one) colours if that makes sense. The price is GBP4.99 which is a great price for this range of inspiring handbooks.-Rebeccalouisesaunders.weebly.com

If this book was a meal it would be a very small starter. It should be called a booklet rather than a book being limited in size pages and content. In reality this booklet is not worth bothering about and why it was ever produced in this format is a mystery to me

I love this collection of books from Search Press. They are small and not too expensive. They provide some basic instruction and you can also follow some step-by-step demos as you get used to painting. I must admit that I tried the one on the front and it was harder than expected. However i still enjoyed having a go.

This book is clearly laid out to show examples of different subjects in watercolour,this includes trees, shadows, buildings and water.
The book is easy to look at and not at all offputtting, and the paint colours used in the examples are usually found in most watercolour sets.
I enjoyed looking through this book as the examples it make you feel much more confident about tackling subjects such as water and shadows.I would recommend it to anyone in the early stages of watercolour painting.

I'm afraid I'm not very impressed with this book. It doesn't seem to fall into any catogary, beginners, tips, improver.
I' have bought much better watercolour books which encourage.and inspire. This does neither
