  3. 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!

  6. Ready to Paint Tulips in Watercolour Book with Fiona Peart

    Ready to Paint Tulips in Watercolour Book with Fiona Peart

    RRP £8.99
    SAA Price £6.99

    By concentrating on a single flower type, Fiona Peart rather cleverly sidesteps the problems of dealing with what can be a bewildering variety of forms. Instead, she is able to concentrate on the colours and shapes that Charles Reid said are the real basis of flower painting.

    In the five demonstrations that make up the book, Fiona shows you blooms in a range of contexts from single varieties to colour and group studies. However, as well as demonstrating composition and representation, Fiona will also show you how to use washes, shading and granulation to great effect in both foregrounds and backgrounds.
    As an introduction to flower painting, the single-type approach has much to recommend it. However, Fiona also offers what turns out to be a great deal of technical advice that has wider application, making this a worthwhile investment for any artist.

  9. Botanical Illustration for Beginners with Meriel Thurstan and Rosie Martin Book

    Botanical Illustration for Beginners with Meriel Thurstan and Rosie Martin Book

    RRP £19.99
    SAA Price £15.99

    In their latest volume, Meriel and Rosie dispel much of the myth and mystique that surrounds the subject of botanical illustration.

    Although it is a topic that can involve a lifetime of study, there are approaches you can adopt and techniques you can learn quickly that will take you a long way towards producing detailed and lifelike representations of flowers and plants.

    Practised experts themselves, Meriel and Rosie have broken the process down into a series of easy-to-follow stages that take you through each step of building up a finished work. They also explain what to look for in your subject, how to choose colours and the techniques for recording both detail and structure.

    In each chapter, a fully-worked exercise will put what you've learnt into practice before you move onto the next step. These are nicely graded so that you'll be building up your skills by actual working. It's an encouraging, hands-on approach that means you can see results all the time and are never bogged down in theory. Media include both watercolour and coloured pencils.

    This is a thorough but wonderfully uncomplicated guide to what can be a very technical subject.
