Member Price Tooltip


Joe Dowden is one of the best painters of water around. He's also one of the best at explaining his working methods and this comprehensive guide will tell you everything you need to know.

From still lakes to rushing rivers by way of wet pavements and sparkling seas, Joe will show you how to bring life, light and movement to this often tricky subject.

Beginning with handy guides to composition, colour, tone and perspective, your basic skills will develop with constant exercises and practice. Joe demonstrates ways to capture deep and sunlit water, reflections and ripples. The trick throughout is to create detail by suggesting rather than over-working it.

A series of seven extended demonstrations then brings together everything you've learnt so far. You'll see how to put in figures and wildlife, as well as how to deal with foregrounds and backgrounds and create recession in larger landscapes.

This is a thorough tour that should keep you happy and informed for a long time to come.
