In this book Stuart Littlejohn shows how to use watercolour techniques to create strikingly beautiful paintings based on Celtic fantasies.
The book covers a wealth of topics, from materials and equipment to how to draw Celtic figures, and there are individual sections focusing on hair, clothes, ornamentation and symbolism. The book is packed with ideas that will fire your imagination and inspire you to create your own Celtic art , and there are notes throughout on Celtic folklore and symbolism.
Step-by-step instructions introduce the basic painting techniques, and the book ends with two stunning projects - both full of the richness and detail that characterise Stuart's work.
