This super-value compilation from the successful Tips and Techniques series will take you from basic principles to a finished work you can be proud of.

Arnold Lowrey kicks it all off with a guide to basic techniques that includes mark-making, colour mixing and brushwork before moving on to the main landscape elements. Wendy Jelbert takes over, showing you how to use quick, on-the-spot sketches as the basis for a more thought-through work in the studio. Geoff Kersey is always good on the technical details and his guide to the tricky topic of perspective is a masterpiece of clarity and simplicity.

The book concludes with Barry Herniman showing you how to use masking fluid, lifting out, and much more.

Please note this book is a compilation of the following Tips & Techniques titles: Perspective Depth & Distance, Starting to Paint, From Sketch to Painting and Painting Mood and Atmosphere.

Please note: This title is a 'handbook' re-print of 'Watercolour Tips & Techniques'

  1. I am a beginner in watercolours Review by J W Smith

    I have read through this book and am still assimilating techniques and am sure it is going to be very useful so 4 stars to date.
    However the book I have found most helpful is the one not available here for review and bought at the same time. How to Paint Watercolour Landscapes by Gwen Scott. Her book gives a detailed step by step approach to building up a picture. It is very clearly laid out and informative, so 5 Stars to Gwen.

    Thank you for your review; we hope you enjoy many years of exploring watercolours.
    We have copied your review onto Gwen Scott\'s How to Paint Watercolour Landscapes (GSHPWB) on your behalf. (Posted on 12/10/2012)

  2. Waterc olour tips & Techniques book Review by Peter D Faulknall

    My first reaction is that the book will do what I expected and serve as a silant tutor. A previous tutor told me that watercolour painting is 10% talent and 90% technique and I need more technique!! (Posted on 28/09/2012)

  3. Good value Review by John Ray

    A great book and plenty to have a go at. (Posted on 26/09/2012)
