Description

This book is the perfect companion for the watercolour landscape painter. Richard Taylor looks at each element of the landscape in turn. He moves from small details, such as a quick painting of his backpack, drawn in a break from walking, to wide sweeping panoramas.



Detailed annotations point to key areas of interest for each painting showing, for example, how a wash has been used to create shadows in still water, or how paper has been left blank to represent the tops of clouds. Alongside each painting you'll find the palette of colours used, with advice on combining colours for best effect.



Step-by-step demonstrations show basic watercolour techniques in action and longer projects reveal how Richard develops a fully-realised painting. Packed with invaluable hints and tips and illustrated with the author's inspiring watercolours, this book is perfect for the beginner or more experienced watercolour painter.
