This brilliantly simple book brings all the watercolour techniques together under one pocket-sized cover.

Designed to be used in the field, it covers colour mixing, brushwork, composition and scene selection before moving on to skies, clouds, flowers, trees, buildings, mountains, water, people and animals. Each section is complete yet concise and Matthew’s straightforward explanations are a breath of fresh air.

Topics include weather, lighting, spatial recession, detail, waves, boats and skin tones as well as special effects and troubleshooting. All of these things have been covered before, but never so succinctly and clearly. Matthew is a master of explaining things in a way that’s always easy to follow and understand and his illustrations are pitch-perfect.
