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.
