Travels with Watercolour
For many years, Lucy Willis, in collaboration with The Artist magazine, led groups on painting expeditions as far afield as India and Zanzibar. Drawing on her experience, this book offers a practical guide to painting on location, covering subjects such as landscapes, gardens, water, buildings and people, as well as ideas for planning a painting trip and how to ‘finish off’ sketches and photographs on your return.
Sunlight & Shadows in Watercolour
Lucy Willis, herself an award-winning artist, uses her own watercolours on every page of this practical guide to demonstrate and explain various techniques. Starting with a sketch or a photograph, painting indoors or out, in all weathers and at different times of day, she offers advice on how shadows and the effects of light on objects and landscapes can create atmosphere in a painting.
