Collins watercolour workshop

£6.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The workshop approach to learning to paint is based on active participation by the student under the guidance of a professional tutor. In 'Watercolour Workshop' instructional teaching is carefully combined with practical work, and from the start the emphasis is on the importance of developing an individual style rather than copying that of other artists. Watercolour is an exciting and challenging medium, and its transparent washes and luminous colours are ideal for creating paintings that are full of atmosphere and character. Here John Lidzey provides practical advice on all the important aspects of painting in watercolour and explains how to use the medium most expressively. The book contains a number of features to encourage students to try out techniques for themselves - just as if they were actually attending a workshop - and to stimulate them to create their own original work. These include: - Projects - of varying degrees of difficulty and with a system of self-assessment to monitor progress - Exercises - putting theory into practice - Methods and materials - comprehensive guidelines to improve painting skills - Practical tips - helpful hints and check-lists - Ideas and inspiration - varied subject matter, ranging from still life, flowers and interiors to landscapes, buildings and figures As well as John Lidzey's own paintings, the work of several other well known contemporary artists is included, illustrating a wide variety of styles and techniques, and revealing the beauty of this popular medium. 'Watercolour Workshop', with its emphasis on practical work and the development of ideas, provides an ideal introduction to the fundamental principles of watercolour painting. Both beginners and painters with some experience will find it an essential guide - inspirational as well as instructional - which will encourage them to paint with increasing skill and confidence.

Small amount of wear to pages and jacket.
