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.
Design and Colour in Watercolour
After studying at the Glasgow School of Art and working in fabric design, Michelle Scragg returned to her first love, painting, and became a successful artist. In this book she explains her adventurous approach to watercolour and her love for colour and design. Richly illustrated with Scragg's own work, the book discusses the basic skills and strengths of watercolour, the use of bold colour, the value of drawing, the art of translating painting into fabric design, and studio practice.
