Previously published in hardback, this new softbacked edition of David Webb’s Complete Guide to Watercolour tells you everything you will ever need to know about the medium. David is an experienced artist and teacher, and his lively explanations and demonstrations will help both experienced artists, and those new to the medium, find inspiration. Opening with chapters on materials and techniques, the book moves on to making pictures, covering composition, perspective, colour and mood. A section titled Expressing Form & Surface, includes specific elements of subject matter, such as landscapes, texture, and figures and portraits. The final chapter concentrates on different artists’ approaches to watercolour, which provides a fascinating insight into the possibilities and variety of this beautiful medium.

About Leisure Painter

Welcome to a new year of painting with Leisure Painter. We begin this month's tutorials with David Webb's new year-long series, Watercolour basics and beyond, where he takes you through essential watercolour techniques. This month, David discusses basic equipment and the first of the techniques: the wash. For all those who want a back-to-basics approach to drawing and painting, we have step-by-step demonstrations, illustrated techniques and practical advice in watercolour, acrylics and oils as well as drawing media. For those with more experience, you will find plenty of inspiration and practical instruction for painting portraits, landscapes, animals, still lifes, abstracts, a market scene and more. We're here to help you make the most of your favourite hobby.
