Description
Written by professional artist Charles Evans, this guide begins with notes on how to use the pre-printed watercolour paper and how to make copies of the outlines should you want to attempt the projects again.

Following this there is a short ‘what you need’ section, enabling you to gather together the paints, brushes and basic equipment required to start painting, and some brief guidance on general techniques such as how to mix your watercolours, how to make the most of your palette and enhance your watercolours with the addition of gouache. The six stunning step-by-step projects build in difficulty as you work through the book, introducing new techniques and incorporating numerous handy hints and tips to help you progress on your painting journey. The six sheets of watercolour paper, supplied by Daler-Rowney, are pre-printed with the initial outline drawing for each of the projects, enabling you to start painting straight away and giving you the best possible chance of producing a gorgeous coastal painting.

About the Author
Charles Evans is one of the UK's leading painters, well-known from his long-running TV series and for his art classes, which are held all over the UK. After a conventional school education Charles entered and spent many years in the catering trade, eventually taking a break to study at Lincoln College of Art. He then joined the Royal Air Force. Following several years in the military, Charles resumed his civilian life in catering, owning bistros and contract catering companies, before turning back to art around thirty years ago. Charles made over two hundred television programmes on art for the Tyne Tees television company, then for the Discovery Channel.

Charles has written several books for Search Press, and now also represents Daler-Rowney as their main demonstrator. His exuberant and informal personality is reflected in his paintings, which have a lightness and simplicity that many artists aspire to.
