Three expert watercolourists show how to paint fairies, dragons, unicorns and angels in watercolour. There is extensive advice on how to draw each of these figures, and on watercolour techniques, as well as on using colour imaginatively to bring fantasy art to life. There are eight beautiful step-by-step demonstrations, showing how to paint magical fantasy paintings, and the drawings are all provided on tracing paper to pull out and transfer.
