Structured and practical in approach, David Bellamy's guide has amateur painters painting pictures right from the start. The well-known teacher-artist helps students to learn techniques by producing actual sketches, studies and watercolour paintings in this inspiring and practical guide. The book is divided into three main parts. The first section covers all the practical aspects of watercolour painting; the second section is more challenging, requiring students to take a little more initiative and develop their own style; and the third shows how to paint the many different elements of the landscape. The course includes numerous practical exercises which highlight the key points covered in each chapter and there are 12 demonstration pictures with clear, step-by-step instructions.
