Product description


"The book provides a unique practical and theoretical insight into
the work of the masters of watercolour, past and present.(...) A beautiful
book and worth every penny".
-- North west Evening Mail

"The scope and range is astonishing. The artists' work is
beautiful, varied and inspirational."
-- Bournemouth Daily Echo

Brimming with beautiful paintings, old and new -- Hampshire Chronicle


In 1860, the members of the RWS Council proposed that, following the example of the Royal Academy, each newly elected Member should give a painting to the Society. This collection of amazing artworks forms the basis of the "Royal Watercolour Society Diploma Collection" - one of the most important collections of watercolours in the world. From Edward Burne-Jones and Dame Laura Knight to John Singer-Sargent and Russell Flint, it contains works from some of history's most prestigious artists in this field. To create this beautifully presented book, the current members of the RWS have looked through this collection and each chosen a work that personally and particularly inspires them. They have then generated works of their own that reflect that inspiration. The revealing essays that accompany these pictures give the reasons for their choice and discuss the methods that the artist of choice appears to have used, as well as the ways that these methods and approaches compare with their own. Brimming with beautiful paintings, especially chosen or newly created, this book provides useful and revealing insights from leading artists.

The book is divided into five sections - composition, colour, tone, draughtsmanship and creating a narrative - and each artist comments on how these elements provide the source of the appeal of their chosen picture. Offering a fascinating look inside the mind of the artist, "Watercolour Masters" provides a unique practical and theoretical insight into the work of the masters of watercolour, past and present.
