9780004133652: Lucy Willis' Light in Watercolour

This successful book by popular artist Lucy Willis is now being reissued in a paperback edition. It covers everything you need to know about painting light in watercolour effectively.

Lucy Willis is an extremely popular painter and she is renowned for her ability to depict light in her paintings – indeed, she is one of the best exponents of the subject. All painters in watercolour aspire to have that ‘light touch’ in their work, and painting light and shadows is crucial to making paintings come alive, whether landscapes, interiors or still life.

Drawing on many years of experience, Lucy Willis shows the artist how to produce paintings full of light and space – whether you decide to paint outside on a summer’s morning or indoors with candlelight as your only light source. The subject is discussed in-depth and the book includes many exercises and step-by-step demonstrations for painters to try out in their own time.
