Ann Blockley’s Watercolour Workshop

There are some artists from whom a new book is not merely another publication, but an event. Ann Blockley is a prime example. Her individual and very personal style makes her one of the best interpreters of the natural world around. She is an accomplished teacher and there is significant demand for information on her working methods. This beautiful book has plenty to please the nonpractising connoisseur. It is also her most practical offering to date and contains exercises, tips and demonstrations that provide an insight into the way Ann sees and portrays the world around her. Much of this involves analysis and interpretation, but there is also plenty of information on the techniques used to achieve rich washes, negative shapes and softened edges. This is both a masterpiece and thoroughly enjoyable and inspiring.
