Watercolour for the Absolute Beginner Book is the ideal book for those who have never previously painted with watercolours. It is an easy introduction into the technique.
This useful step-by-step book shows how to get a good result in watercolour landscape painting from the very start using this beautiful medium.
Watercolour for the Absolute Beginner is a comprehensive book and begins with excellent advice for beginners, including easy drawing for painting, composition, easy perspective, light and shade, colour, and how to paint skies, tree, water and figures in watercolour.
There are then six simple step by step painting exercises. Each exercise leads into a more developed step by step painting project, including a windmill, seascape, snow scene, mountains and lakes, bluebell stream and an all-rounder featuring a landscape with buildings and figures. The exercises are ideal for beginners and the main projects will also build skills for improving artists. A pull-out outline drawing is provided for every exercise and main project. (Matthew Palmer, the author explains how to transfer these onto watercolour paper). There are plenty of tips and tricks also provided by Matthew, which are easy for beginners to understand and then incorporate into their own artwork creations.
