In this new and extended edition of her best-selling book in the 'How to Paint' series: 'Colour and Light in Watercolour' (first published 2010), Jean Haines has produced a book even more inspirational than the first. With 40 per cent new material in the form of new hands-on demonstrations, examples of her work and extended text, Jean provides a valuable insight into the materials and techniques she uses to inject colour and light into her stunningly beautiful, award-winning watercolour paintings.

Jean's enthusiasm and passion for art is evident throughout the book, which is packed full of ideas, useful tips, expert advice and over 20 step-by-step demonstrations. With subjects ranging from atmospheric winter landscapes to bright colourful cockerels, all painted in Jean's loose and expressive style, artists of all tastes and abilities will not fail to be inspired by her imaginative and exciting use of light and colour.

The title tells you what the book is about: how to see light and how to use brushwork and colour to express it with paint. If you're familiar with Jean's work, you'll know that this is about a lot more than just light and dark and that washes, tone, composition and even granulation are all important.

The accompanying DVD captures Jean's enthusiasm and passion for art as she guides you through a variety of exciting projects, from a delicate study of a Fuschia and some colourful Honesty seed heads to a colourful project of a herb picker.

Please note that while this is a Region 0 DVD, it is PAL formatted and therefore unlikely to play in North America, Japan, South Korea and some of the Pacific Islands.

However, all DVDs will play on personal computers and laptops.

    book was good but however I already owned one of her previous books and found this one a little repetitive. (Posted on 02/10/2012)
