Important as it is, successful watercolors require more than good technique. Often, it is the artist’s attitude to their work that can make the difference between a merely competent painting and one that really stands out. Confidence is the key, and for the intermediate painter, this comes not just by practicing techniques but also by developing a deeper understanding of the underlying tenets of watercolor painting. Hazel Soan, internationally successful artist and instructor, reveals the secrets of watercolor painting that are so often overlooked in the desire to capture likeness. By focusing on the practice and discipline of painting, artists will build confidence in their skills, which will lead to a more positive approach and to paintings that are both vibrant and exciting.

All the essential skills for successful painting are beautifully illustrated and described by one of the inspirational watercolour painters working today. James Fletcher-Watson inspires all enthusiasts with his translucent washes, dramatic skies, atmospheric mountain scenes and skill in capturing the true spirit of a place. While focusing on individual elements, including skies, trees, country cottages, town houses, mountains, water, people and animals, each chapter offers advice on putting them all together in stunning landscapes and townscapes. Along with information on choosing brushes, paper and colours, there is a helpful section on composition. Paintings are used to demonstrate how to build up texture and detail; the subtle mixing of colours to produce shadows and reflections; and how to introduce distance and perspective into a scene. Moving from brooding hills and lakeland scenes to the charm of country lanes and the grandeur of Venice and Florence, the book illustrates exactly what you need to know to make a successful painting. This revision and reworking of Secrets of Watercolour takes the best of James Fletcher-Watson's earlier work and combines it with his masterly work of recent years.

A progressive, informative art course for beginner watercolorists, revealing the secrets and science behind watercolor. Many watercolor artists are disappointed with the results of their endeavors, because their attempts at painting do not always turn out as intended. However, the majority of mistakes are caused by the misuse of paint rather than artistic inability. Understanding the medium and how to use it will turn failure into success, and discovering the truth about how to use watercolors is exciting, liberating and enormously rewarding. The Watercolour Enigma is based on a practical course by artist Stephen Coates, and is designed to take the student through a process of learning rarely seen in other practical art books. By examining the basic science of watercolour - the properties of water and color pigment, and through a series of practical, straightforward, step-by-step painting exercises, budding painters will leave Stephen's book not only with a mine of watercolor knowledge, but also will step away with a selection of stunning paintings they will be proud to have painted. Fulfil your dream and learn to paint like a true, watercolour expert.
