Watercolour is a wonderfully expressive medium, offering painters endless opportunities for portraying their subjects in many different ways – but it is also an unpredictable medium, and learning to master it can often prove quite a challenge. Despite the wealth of advice on watercolour painting already available, the same practical problems seem to crop up over and over again, perhaps because many amateur painters do not fully understand why things go wrong in the first place.

Using a question and answer approach, he offers practical advice on a wide range of topics, from planning your painting and choosing the right materials to portraying the various elements of the landscape successfully.
Written in an easy-to-follow and entertaining style, 'Watercolour Troubleshooter' will be invaluable to beginners, in particular, but it also contains many useful tips for more experienced painters.
