  4. DISCONTINUED & SOLD OUT - Acrylic Illuminations Book with Nancy Reyner

    DISCONTINUED & SOLD OUT - Acrylic Illuminations Book with Nancy Reyner

    RRP £22.99
    SAA Price £14.99

    Due in soon

    This exciting book contains a wealth of tips and techniques for exploring and exploiting the effects of light.

    Nancy looks at unconventional methods, including the use of metal leaf and iridescent paints that add new highlights and textures. Although it seems barely possible that these could have any place in conventional, representative painting, there's no doubt that the results are effective and convincing, as illustrations from 44 different artists will show.
    As well as unusual materials, Nancy also examines the effects of pouring paint, a technique that's more controllable than might first appear. She will also show you how to achieve optical and luminous effects, with the use of fluorescent and phosphorescent paints. Again, these are revealed as much more than just gimmicks.

    The book is simply presented and easy to follow and spiral binding means that it lays flat in use, essential when you're trying to read and paint at the same time!

  9. Exotic Botanical Illustration with The Eden Project Book with Rosie Martin & Meriel Thurstan

    Exotic Botanical Illustration with The Eden Project Book with Rosie Martin & Meriel Thurstan

    RRP £19.99
    SAA Price £14.99

    This latest in the Eden Project series on botanical painting is perhaps the best yet.

    Billed as 'exotic' and featuring a Bird of Paradise flower on the front cover, it could easily be mistaken for a niche publication of interest to specialists only.

    Further investigation reveals that many of the subjects are far from unfamiliar, with studies of orchids, the Venus fly trap and even pumpkins and artichokes hardly stretching credibility.

    Beneath all this, however, is a thoroughly sound guide to all the techniques of botanical illustration in both watercolour and coloured pencil.

    Everything is clearly explained and beautifully illustrated (as we've come to expect from Rosie and Meriel) and there are demonstrations and detail paintings wherever they're needed.

    Sound advice abounds, from familiarising yourself with your plant and understanding colour to the use of washes and techniques for capturing bloom and sheen.

    Although the subject matter here is not perhaps that of the completely well-trodden path, this book is nevertheless one of the best guides to botanical illustration there is.

    There are some fascinating colour mixes and you'll see the different techniques used to effectively depict both slow and fast moving water.

    By the end of following the instruction in this DVD you will have two stunning pieces of artwork to your name. In the first, a display of brightly coloured fruit and vegetables, David explains technique in detail so you can really get the shape, colour, texture and shadow just right. He then continues the step by step instruction with a beautiful still life including a cornet. Learn and paint with David Webb in this fantastic instructional DVD.

  12. Peter Woolleys Watercolour Studio CD Rom (Version 4)

    Peter Woolleys Watercolour Studio CD Rom (Version 4)

    RRP £19.40
    SAA Price £16.99

    Learn to paint in watercolour with Peter Wooley with this CD-Rom. With video demonstrations, step-by-step workshops and interactive projects all in the comfort of your own home, you'll be painting master pieces in no time!

    As with anything, watercolour requires drive and determination to succeed. It is a medium that throws up challenges and problems not encountered in any other media. When things go wrong, it can be agonizingly frustrating. But none of these challenges or problems are insurmountable. If you accept the premise that you cannot run until you have learned to walk, and are prepared to take those early steps at an easy, slow pace, then I believe the rudiments of watercolour painting can be learnt by anyone.

    This doesn't mean I regard the whole business as easy. Far from it! The student of watercolour can expect to find exercises a completely mixed bag. Some things will go right first time, whilst others will remain difficult and seemingly unobtainable. It will often feel like two successful steps forward are always followed inevitably by one step backwards or visa versa. The key to success is perseverance! When an exercise has gone well, repeat it to prove to yourself that you can do it again. When an exercise has not gone well, try again. If you continued to fail it, take a break from it. If necessary, move onto the next exercise and return to it when you are in a clearer frame of mind. Above all, save everything. Good or bad; save it! File it in chronological order somewhere so you can review your progress.

    Observe closely at all times what happens after you have applied the paint. Much of what happens in watercolour happens after you've done you've your bit. Happy accidents are an integral part of the medium - some of the best bits you just can't plan.

    Above all, enjoy yourself! Don't be too hard on yourself when things don't go right. Remember, it's just a bit of paper and a spot of paint. Pace yourself and you'll be rewarded. Rush it and you'll miss something important. Learn to love the paint before you learn the best ways to apply it. It's a long road, but one rich with surprises. Happy Painting!

    The CD-Rom, version 4 of Watercolour Studio , includes advice and information, techniques and hints, a complete sketching guide and fully printable notes.
