This is a book, Jane says, that sets out to prove that watching paint, especially watercolour, dry can be extremely exciting.

If you've always wanted to find out what your medium is capable of, read on. This is a book that explores the many and varied techniques you can try, from wet-in-wet through gesso and granulation to the use of salt and other ways of creating texture. She even explores inks and watercolour mediums to maximise the number of effects that are achievable.

Don't make the mistake of assuming it's just a technical exercise for its own sake, though. Throughout, Jane shows you how to create pictorial effects and use watercolour's properties and effects to create strong images that reflect the nature of your subject.

Revel in the use of colour, create background shapes with tissue paper, cling film or even cotton thread, enhance composition with collage. The world really is your oyster and a series of fully-illustrated projects will show you how to paint a wide range of landscape and natural subjects with a whole added dimension.

In the DVD, Jane's experimental methods in watercolour mix bold, strong colour with fluid movement, creating beautifully lively art works that capture the fun and excitement of the medium like no other.

In the early stages of the DVD, she shows you how to master the perfect vibrant wet-in-wet background, placing colour in certain spots to mix and create beautiful and surprising mixes. These backgrounds become the base of many of Jane's works, and the main project here is no exception. In the later stages, she creates a lively and exciting dandelion clock using watercolour, inks, granulation mediums and delicate brush strokes to inspire you to create your own wonderful and experimental unleashed watercolours.

Watching paint dry isn't just exciting, it brings out a whole new approach to creativity.
