"Boat, harbour, and a bit of water" would be slightly monotonous, says Charles in his introduction to this impressively varied guide to painting maritime subjects.

Interpreting his brief as widely as possible, Charles includes craft as different as an ice-breaker, tall ships and inshore fishing boats. Locations include harbours, rivers, canals and the open sea and you even get a choice of weather and lighting conditions.

The What to Paint format offers pre-drawn outlines that you can trace down onto your paper, and couples them with a brief description of the way the painting was completed along with notes on the palette used and information on the important details. Charles is an accomplished demonstrator who knows exactly what to include in these sections, making the method particularly easy to follow.

The book contains 24 demonstrations both around Britain and worldwide locations as well as a basic introduction to brushes and colours that'll start you on the right track. It forms a comprehensive and comprehensible introduction to a rewarding subject.

To quickly and accurately trace the free outlines provided in this book, we recommend you use Tracedown and for a great book and Tracedown bundle offer please click here
