  1. Learn Watercolour Landscapes Quickly with Hazel Soan

    Learn Watercolour Landscapes Quickly with Hazel Soan

    RRP £9.99
    SAA Price £7.99

    There are more books on landscape painting than just about any subject. It’s an endlessly varied topic that offers challenges and rewards in equal measure. However, if you think you’ve seen it all before, think again.

    In this intriguing and informative little book, Hazel goes right back to basics – even discussing what a landscape painting is. It’s an illusion, she tells us. Capturing a complex, three-dimensional subject on a flat piece of paper is magic, sleight of hand where tone, colour and perspective not only put the viewer in the artist’s shoes, but tell them what it was like to be there.

    The big advantage a short book has is brevity and there are no lengthy explanations or exercises here. Hazel has summed up the wisdom of a lifetime in short paragraphs that tell you everything you need to know. She’ll immediately have you wanting to try ideas both old and new for yourself.

    Less here really is more and the lack of extensive detail makes everything Hazel says crystal clear. It may be short, but this is one of the best and most comprehensive books on landscape around. Learn More

    Light and Shade in watercolour Book with Hazel Soan

    RRP £19.99
    SAA Price £15.99

    Handling of light and shade is the key to successful painting. Get it wrong and your results will always appear flat, dull and uninteresting. Get it right and they will sparkle with life and atmosphere.

    Working with light can be a challenge. The right balance is hard to achieve and will vary depending on the subject and the circumstances.

    Hazel Soan is a reliable teacher and she won’t let you down here. Her patient explanations will help you to understand not just what to do, but how and why you need to do it. She starts by showing you how to see – that important step before you even think of picking up a brush. Only then does she show you how to use watercolour to create contrast, tone, shape and form.

    It’s here that her clear guidance is at its most reassuring. In this book and DVD set, Hazel will show you how to use composition to balance light and shade, consider ratios and use your best tool, the white of the paper.

    You’ll also see how to mix the right colours to create tonal values, look for patterns and create that elusive quality, atmosphere.
