Learn how delicate washes of translucent watercolours can help you paint white flowers on white paper; and how to paint buildings and urban scenes quickly and effectively. There's practical advice to help you develop your composition and colour-mixing skills, and an opportunity to paint a beautiful rural coastal scene in pastel.
