Learn to Paint Buildings is a new title in HarperCollins’ bestselling Learn to Paint series. Richard Taylor is particularly known for his very attractive paintings of buildings and here he explains all the basic techniques for painting this fascinating subject in watercolour.
Buildings are a very appealing subject for many amateur painters, but sometimes the thought of having to master perspective can deter them from putting buildings into their pictures with confidence.
In Learn to Paint Buildings Richard Taylor covers all the essential aspects of painting buildings in watercolour – including how to simplify the subject of perspective – and provides practical advice on techniques, colour, light and shade, composition and texture.
A wide range of different buildings is included in the book, from country cottages and farm buildings to urban terraces, churches and shop buildings. Richard also looks at details, such as balconies, steps, archways, chimneypots and railings, and the additional subjects that enhance any view of a building, such as people or vehicles. Tips and step-by-step demonstration paintings are also included.
